Preservation map of europe

The European Commission on Preservation and Access (ECPA) presents "The
Preservation Map of Europe" a virtual directory of organisations working in
the preservation field within Europe. This map includes detailed
information about preservation practice in European countries and can be
found at EPIC, the internet site of the ECPA.

The project was funded by the European Commission (DG X) and aims to
map preservation policy and practice in Europe with the intent to
stimulate the flow of information. With this survey a better picture
will emerge of what is being done and in which area cooperation is
possible and necessary. Eventually, this will stimulate the
development of joint projects and more targeted research.

The preservation map is a virtual directory of organizations working
in the preservation field in Europe containing detailed information
such as addresses, E-mail and telephone numbers of relevant
organizations. Besides this factual information, it gives a short
description of the organization and its preservation policy and
activities. The map also lists important preservation projects and
training courses for staff. Over the last year, the ECPA has
collected information for the map by sending out questionnaires,
general appeals for information and letters with specific questions.

At this moment information about the majority of countries in Europe
is available on the Internet.  The map now includes: Norway, Sweden,
Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Germany, the Netherlands, the
United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Luxemburg, France, Spain,
Portugal, Andorra, Italy, Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, Albania,
Bulgaria, Macedonia, Hungary and the Czech Republic. Work on the
project continues and the missing countries will be included as soon
as possible. With a special search mode viewers can get answers to
their specific questions about preservation in Europe.

To make a directory of all large organizations in the field
throughout Europe has proved to be an extensive project that cannot
be done without the input of others. Work on the project continues
and the ECPA asks for your help in completing the survey.  Please
send us information or updates about your country, organization,
projects and training facilities to:
