In the course of discussions following the workshop, it became clear that the European library community had recommendations that they wished to make to the European Commission in order to help direct the future course of European digitisation activity. LIBER and EBLIDA made a submission to Commissioner Viviane Redding concerning these recommendations on 8 January 2008.

LIBER cooperates with the Digital Library Federation (DLF) and OCLC in order to help coordinate the production of a global register of digital masters. Libraries who create digital masters can upload their metadata records to EROMM, the European Register Of digital and Microfom Masters. Once uploaded in EROMM, records will also be loaded into the global Register of Digital Masters (RDM).
