Europeana Cloud

1 February 2013 to: 30 April 2016

Europeana Cloud will change the way that data is sent to Europeana, and will give researchers new tools to enrich and use that data.

Our project is working towards a cloud-based infrastructure which will:

  • Source, prepare and add new data (2.4 million new metadata records and 5 million digital items) to the Cloud infrastructure;
  • Allow content providers and aggregators to efficiently store, share and provide access to digital cultural heritage;
  • Give researchers new services and tools, with which they can access, work on and share the content stored in the Cloud.
  • Enable everyone to feed back enriched data back into the cloud, for use by institutions and researchers alike.

A brief overview of what we are trying to achieve for content providers and aggregators is given in this video:
