2012 was quite a busy year for the people working at the Research department of the KB National Library of the Netherlands. The large-scale project IMPACT was concluded in the summer of 2012, followed by the start of the IMPACT Centre of Competence in Digitisation. Work continued in ongoing research projects such as SCAPE and APARSEN (both in the area of digital preservation) and the newly started Europeana Newspapers project. In addition, articles were written on research areas such as copyright and benchmarking for libraries, and a website was started for the Atlas of Digital Damages. Last but not least, our library & two people from our Research department were featured in an item on the Euronews TV channel.
