Podcast: How digitisation can bring a nation’s heritage to the desktops of all

PodcastOne of the projects in JISC’s digitisation programme, Welsh Journals Online, led by the National Library of Wales, will be adding to a growing body of online materials dedicated to Welsh culture, history and language.

In this podcast, director of the project Arwel Jones talks about how digitisation can promote wider efforts to make a nation’s culture and heritage available to all.

The National Library of Wales is playing a leading role in this process through its “Theatre of memory” strategy, which aims to digitise the whole printed output of the Welsh nation, an ambition that can one day become a reality in the context of a small nation.
