  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2168-3204.2012.9.1.art00029  Published OnlineJanuary 2012

The National Library of Sweden (KB) and the Media Conversion Centre (MKC), a part of The National Archives of Sweden, have created Digidaily, a unique inter-agency development project for mass digitisation of newspapers. The goal of the project is to create efficient methods and processes that allows for high quality mass digitisation of newspapers. In Digidaily, we jointly created an atmosphere that allows us to openly discuss, test, and evaluate both the processes and the technical specifications necessary for a development project of this size.At the core of the workflow is the Workflow System, being developed by MKC in close cooperation with the KB. The Workflow System is used to control all parts of the workflow, and it needs to track both the location and the image capture of individual newspapers and pages, their physical condition, the resulting image files and OCR output, the collection of metadata, and the delivery of the digital files.
