www.e-corpus.org: a site for institutions with a role in conserving movable heritage

E-corpus (www.e-corpus.org) is a collective digital platform for heritage institutions launched in 2010 by the Book Conservation Centre in Arles, offering support in the form of co-ordination, international co-operation, IT development, and digitisation. The platform brings together establishments with heritage and document holdings, including libraries, archives, museums, and private collections. e-corpus acts as an interface between such institutions, encouraging them to pool resources and work together. The web site also provides access to heritage collections and interoperability between resources, thanks notably to its OAI-PMH protocol.
