Digital Content

The goal of this policy is to provide culture, heritage, media and social institutions in the State of Qatar with a common set of standards that they can adopt when digitizing their material and publishing their digital content. Such digitization initiatives will, when well executed, increase the quality and quantity of content related to Qatar, especially Arabic content, while simultaneously providing a venue for the preservation of material that would otherwise have been lost due to a variety of factors including technology obsolesce, degradation, and neglect.

 We have also prepared guidelines based on international best practices that will assist relevant institutions in implementing the Media, Culture and Heritage Digitization Policies and Standards.
