We have chosen a cooperative model to work with key partners in the community, such as other libraries, archives, museums, cultural heritage organizations, schools and other knowledge and research institutes. Thus we created a win win situation: we offer our infrastructure, experience and knowledge; our partners offer their content to be shared in our platform, thereby increasing the value for all users.
