THE SPANISH FOCAL POINT OF THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION'S DIGITAL HERITAGE AND CULTURAL CONTENTS PROGRAMME
The Spanish National Library is the Spanish Focal Point for the European Commission's Digital Heritage and Cultural Contents programme for libraries, archives and museums. The secretariat is located in the Department of Promotion, Cultural Development and Institutional Relations.
The Focal Point is responsible for distributing the information regularly received on the programme from the European Commission, clarifying any queries raised, offering advice, giving professionals guidance on activities and resources, and providing the European Commission with the information it requests on any aspect related to the country's libraries, archives and museums. In short, it provides a link between the European Commission's Digital Heritage and Cultural Contents programme and the libraries, archives and museums of Spain.
It is implemented through Calls for Proposals and is disseminated and publicised through Meetings, Seminars, and Publications.
