The project is coordinated by the National Library of the Netherlands.Digitisation workflows Digitisation: a sequence of steps, from selection of analogue sourcematerial to presentation of digital objects for end-users Workflow: software-based execution of a sequence without human27.5.2010 QQML4interaction Challenges and barriers Workflows are tailored to specific needs Lack of interoperability for applied software and input/outdata data Lack of collaboratively used and developed resources and expertise 5. IMPACT is supported by the European Community under the FP7 ICT Work Programme. The project is coordinated by the National Library of the Netherlands.Collaborative workflow development Workflow Development as a community-driven activity using an27.5.2010 QQML5experimental platform Scientific workflows: using web services representing individualsoftware modules (Shiyong Lu et al. 2009) Providing highly innovative and efficient tools to a wider community todesign workflows Technical staff providing the platform, conceptual/library staffdesigning workflows Using Web 2.0 features to share and expand knowledge andresources 6.
