Guidelines for CHIs Digital Transformation
This document presents digital transformation guidelines for cultural heritage institutions (CHIs). They situate digital transformation in the context of opening up GLAM collections, inspired by the work at Europeana Foundation, the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum and the Europeana Network Association. They are based on an in-depth review of the state-of-the-art in self-assessment instruments for heritage institutions, of which the inDICEs self-assessment tool is a further evolution, taken on board insights and lessons learned from the COVID-19 crisis.
The proposed guidelines are centred around four themes: Digital Trends & Participatory Culture, IPR for Cultural Heritage, Strategic Skills, Collaborations and organisation growth, and Approaching Innovation and Digital Strategies. As a whole, they offer the right mix of ingredients for developing
digital strategies in CHIs.
