🤝On October 23, FLOSSK signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the LUMBARDHI Foundation for the donation of a scanner for the digitization of publications and archives held by this cultural institution in Prizren. FLOSSK has worked on the construction of book scanners in order to make this material available to the public and for further processing of this material by the public.
💡This cooperation will serve for the exchange of knowledge, capacities, and resources for digitalization as well as the provision of materials and publications for free use by the public. FLOSSK and Lumbardhi will cooperate in the digitization of Zëri Newspaper, TAN newspaper, completion of the digital archive of Rilindja Newspaper as well as Jeta e Re, Përparimi and Çevren magazines, which will also be public with free access.
📚We would also like to inform you that the digitized book platform books.flossk.org has been enriched with a total of 50 books from the publishing houses of the time, which are considered orphan works. Other books scanned and edited by volunteers will be constantly added to this platform.
This project was made possible by the Culture for Change program. The project is funded by the European Union, managed by the European Union Kosovo, and implemented by Qendra Multimedia and Goethe-Institut.
