We’re now halfway through our Europe at Work season, which, in partnership with museums, galleries, libraries and archives across Europe, aims to show that the working world we inhabit today is rich and varied and is the result of a series of technological and societal changes over time. Here’s a round up of what we've been doing so far...
With under two weeks to go, we are getting very excited to welcome over 300 cultural heritage professionals to The National Library of Portugal in Lisbon. If you’re a ticket holder, read on to make sure you make the most of one of the premier events in the cultural heritage calendar.
The Swedish National Museum of Science and Technology, or Tekniska museet, was one of the first cultural heritage institutions in Sweden to share their data through their national aggregator, and today, more than 128,000 of their objects are available on Europeana Collections. In this guest post, Larissa Borck of the Swedish National Heritage Board interviews Anders Lindeberg-Lindvet, curator at the Tekniska museet, to talk about the importance of openly-licensed content and contributing to Europeana’s Industrial Heritage collection and Europe at Work season.
As part of Europe at Work we look at how EUROCLIO is using industrial heritage material to create learning resources for educators on their Historiana portal. This post explores their Women Working source collection, which encourages students to consider how the availability of source material from a certain period influences and shapes our perspective of that time.
The team behind the GIFT project are proud to launch the GIFT Box, a set of free, open-source tools and ways of working to help museums offer richer digital experiences for their visitors. The GIFT Box provides resources to help you design, plan and implement enhanced visitor experiences, and this post takes a look at some of the creative ways it can be used.
How do you engage students with the abstract concepts taught in STEM (science, tech, engineering, math) classes? By using Europeana Collections to create inspirational teaching resources! In this post we hear from Teddy Tablante from the Youtube channel Branch Education, whose videos on steam engines won this year’s Europeana STEM Challenge.
If you missed out on tickets to Europeana 2019, don’t fear! We’ve got your back by introducing livestreaming of a Europeana event for the very first time. Read on to find out how you can keep up with Europeana 2019 from the comfort of your own home.
An accreditation scheme launched in 2019 by the Europeana Aggregators' Forum empowers aggregators to support their contributing institutions and to give those institutions greater assurances in the skills and knowledge of their aggregators, with the goal of working towards improving the quality of data in Europeana Collections.
Europeana’s current season, Europe at Work, invites people to share stories about working lives past and present. In this post, we offer ideas and inspiration on how cultural heritage institutions can use social media to engage audiences with the season and showcase their own material.

Today, thanks to the development of the Europeana Publishing Framework, it’s possible to measure the quality of any record in Europeana Collections. Here’s an insight into just some of the activities that have helped us to reach this point.
The Europeana Common Culture project aims to improve the content from Europeana’s national aggregators, as well as support their collaboration and deliver a rich programme of events focused on building capacity in the cultural sector. In this guest post, Larissa Borck from theSwedish National Heritage Board - a Common Culture project partner - discusses their open-access webinar series, ‘Open GLAM now!’, which explores how museums and cultural heritage institutions can open up to audiences with the help of digital data and media.
