These digital collections are the result of digitisatiuon or start life "born digital", are made up of searchable, browsable and downloadable information and are created for a reason: they serve particular user groups and intend to answer these user group's information needs.
To create an ADLSN countries [Greenstone..] overview of digital collections that are in progress or offered as full Digital Library Service and learn more about these intentions and ways of access, a mini-survey was done mid 2010 asking for the following background information:
|Institution/ Country||Collection title + description||No. of docs||Access||Types of docs||URL|
The overview is accessible as PDF document: see below.
