The indicator allows institutions to compare “digitisation activity” very broadly with other institutions. On an aggregated scale it provides reference materials for progress in the domain of digital collections (e.g. Proportion of memory institutions with digital heritage collections).
This indicator focuses on the need to digitise that part of the analogue collections of an institution that have not been digitally reproduced yet, expressed as a percentage of the full analogue collections.
The indicator allows institutions to compare performance in collecting any kind of born digital heritage materials (i.e. software, digital documents, digital art and harvested web content) with others.
