The development of the national level digital library projects in Taiwan began in 1998. The initiate project – Digital Museum Project (DMP, 1998~2001), sponsored by the National Science Council (NSC), included several topic-based projects and technical support projects. The outcomes of DMP was quite successful, however, the scale and budget (only $130 million NTD, ca. US$4 million) of DMP was not big enough to cover the whole picture of cultural heritage in Taiwan. For this reason, NSC proposed a five-year’s National Digital Archives Program (NDAP) in the year of 2002 as a sub-project of e-Taiwan.
