The digital special collections at the Leiden University offer an extensive selection of digial manuscrips, lettrs, early printed and rare edition books. A mobile and cloud –based approach has been selected as a new way for students and researchers from the university library to transcribe documents. This presentation will also evaluate existing projects in the field of acces, organisation, transcription and analysis of digital representations of cultural heritage.
