The collection represents the Norwegian nation’s collective memory. Digitizing will help to safeguard the collection for future generations.
Security, scaleable solutions and ensuring sufficient capacity for migration and conversion of digital content are all important elements in digital archiving initiatives.
The National Library of Norway also offers services for archiving of digital content to other cultural institutions in Norway.
Materials that are not protected by copyright are available to everyone online. Where agreements with copyright organisations are in place, copyright-protected material is also made available online to everyone with Norwegian IP addresses. The entire digital collection, including copyright-protected materials is available for research and documentation on the National Library of Norway’s premises.
