In this paper, the participation and the role of individual libraries as partners in a consortium research project on digitization issues are analyzed, following the example of the National and University Library of Slovenia (NUK) as a partner in the ongoing project IMPACT - Improving Access to Text. IMPACT is funded under the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission (FP7) aimed at improving automated text recognition of digitized materials from different European digital collections. For achieving the project’s objectives, a consortium of partners from different European libraries, information technology and software engineering centres and linguistic institutes was established. The consortium’s work is based on interdisciplinary collaboration in which libraries (like NUK) play an important role as demonstrators of tools developed within the project, and representatives of end-users needs and demands as well.
