Abstract

Digitizing is the first and most important step in a preservation and electronic publishing process applied to analog information available today as text, graphics, or multimedia. In most cases, it cannot be done by museums alone. In this paper we describe our realization approach to evaluate the best fitting service provider in the context of 'The Digital Beethoven House' project. It was a difficult task because the digitizing of a composer-referred collection of colored manuscripts and other sources was a pilot project for all participants. The paper gives practical hints for museums how to find the right scan service providers, how to do the digitizing of their museum's stock right and how to receive useful output for the museum's Internet offer.
