The Dúchas.ie Project
The objective of the project is to initiate the digitization1 of the National Folklore Collection (NFC) so that:
(i) the public has access to material from the Collection on the public website and
(ii) a data management system is available for NFC to which other material can be added in future.
- National Folklore Collection, UCD and the National Folklore Foundation
- Fiontar agus Scoil na Gaeilge, DCU
- Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs
1 Digitization here means making a digital copy (scanned or re-recorded) of the following resources: papers (pages and index cards), photographs, audio files, video files. At this point, neither rewriting handwritten material nor the use of optical character recognition (OCR) is involved.
