The selection criteria for digitisation focus on cultural significance, scientific, artistic, and educational value, rarity, regional relevance, and copyright considerations. Technical prerequisites, required equipment, and software for digitisation, processing, and web presentation are detailed. The document emphasizes the importance of maintaining digital material authenticity, ensuring stable electrical supply, and achieving high-quality digital reproductions.
