WP2.1 Ingestion
The objective of this work package is to implement a service for metadata ingestion that covers all phases of the process and keeps track of the work done, thus allowing to obtain a full account of the ingested metadata. The ASSETS Ingestion service consists of the following services: 1) Metadata cleaning. 2)Knowledge extraction: Mappingā€based and inference-based extraction. 3)Metadata Classification. This service will add further knowledge to the ingested metadata by relating them to a taxonomy of semantic categories.

WP2.2 Scalable metadata- and similarity-based indexing and retrieval
The objective of this work package is to create a new type of search service for European Digital Libraries, providing an efficient and effective service. The work package will develop two different types of search; 1) Metadata-based search for digital libraries that only hold object's descriptions and not the content 2) Similarity-based search for digital libraries with multimedia content or with at least the possibility of indexing multimedia content.

WP2.4 Service integration testing and deployment
This work package will combine all ASSET services under one common platform, which will serve as a basis for their interoperability. The interfaces between the platform and the services, as well as between the platform and the content providers will be defined and implemented within this work package. The same services will also be put under the sand boxes of the Europeana Labs for technical testing against the Europeana data sets.
