IMARK module released

The IMARK Steering Group is pleased to announce the release of the second IMARK module in French entitled "Numérisation et création de bibliothèques numériques" which offers 31 lessons concerned with the creation of digital libraries and the preservation of materials in digital format. Also included are lessons covering copyright issues, electronic formats for text and images, metadata and subject indexing, as well as a comprehensive overview of the creation and management of digital documents.

The module was designed for librarians and other information specialists who wish to master the required skills for creating and disseminating complete electronic documents and information system managers wishing to understand more about document preservation and the creation and dissemination of digital libraries. The module was developed by Cirad, FAO, UNESCO and CTA. A wide range of experts and institutions contributed to the development of the module. This, and all IMARK modules, are available at no-cost either through the IMARK website or on CD-ROM upon request. Learners are encouraged to register and select a course.
