Workshops, parallel session 3

Preparing digital heritage for Europeana” Robert Davies, The Heritage Management Organisation

The workshop will introduce the purpose of the Europeana service and its role in safeguarding heritage through access to digitised content created or held by museums. It will demonstrate how cultural material (data) makes its way into, what is done with it, and how it is used by others. It  will cover the tools, supporting resources  and frameworks available to create high quality data consistently to enable its aggregation, including the:

  •  Europeana Licensing Framework
  •  Europeana Publishing Framework
  •  Europeana Data Model (EDM)

Perspectives will be offered on current innovations around data enrichment, IIIF, Linked Open Data, Artificial Intelligence, 3D and multilinguality.
