Endangered Archives Programme: the world's most diverse online archive

The Endangered Archives Programme (EAP) facilitates the digitisation of archives around the world that are in danger of destruction, neglect or physical deterioration. It has been running for over 15 years and digitised nearly eight million images from over 400 projects in 90 countries. Over 100 languages and scripts are represented, making it one of the most diverse and inclusive archives in the world.  The vast majority of this continually expanding online collection is available freely online at eap.bl.uk  EAP is funded by the Arcadia and delivered by the British Library, with technical implementation by Cogapp.  Answers to specific questions:  What is the most significant impact your project either had or hopes to have?  To preserve and disseminate the culture of anyone on the planet, and showcase the huge variety of endangered artifacts (from  Thai gay, lesbian and transgender publications, to Arabic manuscripts of the Ivory Coast).  What do you want people to take away with them after hearing your presentation?  That the programme exists, in case they know of threatened archives. And that its outputs are already freely available for research.  What Europeana community (or communities) does your project relate to?  Research
