RICHES Interactive Showcase

One of the research tasks of the RICHES project has been devoted to the analysis of the status of digital heritage mediated by memory institutions, such as libraries and museums.

The work has started with a collection of cases, where users contributed providing examples of their own experiences.

As a result of this analysis, a number of services and case studies have been identified and are provided in this Showcase.
