Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

Polskie Wydawnictwo Muzyczne is implementing a project co-financed by EU funds entitled "Digitalization of resources held by Polskie Wydawnictwo Muzyczne". The aim of the project is to digitalize the cultural heritage collections and make the PWM resources available to a wide audience through a website. The created web portal will make the PWM resources available online - all you need to do is access the Internet and a device: computer, tablet, phone. Thanks to the digitization, cultural institutions will be able to rent works currently unavailable and place them in their repertoires, which will increase the possibility of broadcasting them. Due to the specificity of the project, the project will be not only regional, national, but international. By launching a web portal, digitised resources of particular value will be made available and presented in the form of digital copies together with a description of metadata, i.e. Iconographic materials of various formats including drawings, engravings, woodcuts, portraits of composers, letters to and from composers, autographs, press, reviews, photos of monuments, tombs, pictures from theatrical insertions, posters of plays, film cliches/classes and orchestral, choral, solo and chamber music materials of the Polish Music Publishing House - scores and performance materials, including the collections of Fryderyk Chopin and Karol Szymanowski, in the form of cripples, diapositives, manuscripts. The target group of the project is very numerous: it includes many institutions such as philharmonics, operas and schools. It is assumed that the target group of teachers who will be most interested in downloading the materials through the portal will be able to familiarise themselves with the given title and then lend it in the traditional way.
