Dear colleague,

On behalf of the community of archives, libraries and museums in Europe we ask you to help us by participating in this survey. There is a growing demand for reliable data about :

·         digitisation activities
·         the cost of digital collections
·         access to and use of digital collections
·         the preservation of digital heritage materials

This survey is a follow-up to the successful ENUMERATE Core Surveys of 2012, 2013 and 2015 and is designed to inform both your own institutional policies and policies on a national and European level. Together we can make the case for a better understanding of our investments in digital heritage activities.

The survey is organised by the ENUMERATE network as part of Europeana. The survey is distributed among thousands of institutions across Europe.

The data collected will be kept strictly anonymous. The information that you share with us will not be published in a way that is traceable to your institution. The data is primarily used to establish a statistical measure of the progress of digitisation in European countries.

The survey consists of 37 questions. The time needed to answer these will depend on the availability of management information about your digitisation activities. If the information is not readily available additional research in your institution may be needed. The reward for such efforts will go to both your institution and the community of memory institutions in Europe.

We hope you will be able to complete the questionnaire by June 30 2017. You can pause and return at any time to continue.

Please do not hesitate to contact us through the e-mail address listed below if you need more information about the questions or the survey in general.

We thank you in advance for your kind attention and participation.

Best Regards, the ENUMERATE Team
