Kuwaiti Periodicals Digitization Projects and Initiatives: A Survey Study .

Auther : Dr. Amal M. Abd-Elwahhab - Prof. Yousria A. Zayid

     This study addresses the subject of digitization projects and Initiatives for Kuwaiti periodicals, their goals, strategies, practices, and the challenges they face, through a survey of these projects. To achieve the goals of this study, the survey's approach was used, and a checklist was developed for a data collection. The study showed that there are three Institutions that have four existing digitization projects for Kuwaiti periodicals. Two projects are implemented by the Central Agency for Information Technology and the other two are implemented by both National Library of Kuwait and the Public Authority for Industry. These projects are the focus of this study. In addition to these four projects, there were three other digitization trials, which were limited to the scanning process. The study recommended that, the digitization projects must be adopted by a National Bibliographic center, which is National Library of Kuwait.  This will allow for accurate planning and better outcomes. In addition, a database for digitized Journals should be developed in cooperation with the authorities and institutions involved in the State of Kuwait and make them available through the Internet.
