  • optimize the process of collection and manipulation of multimedia materials (conversion from analog to digital and manipulation of digital materials);
  • semantic integration of arhive's contents; 
  • multimedia presentation of the contents;
  • assist in e-learning and interdisciplinary research;
  • integrate the rich slovenian cultural heritage into a wider European context.
