Europeana believes making cultural heritage digitally available and accessible is important. But why exactly? What is the value of this? Who benefits from it? What changes does it create? Or in other words: what is the impact of Europeana?
Impact is a hot topic for Europeana this year! It is embedded in every element of our Business Plan, and became the focus of a new Task Force. Our goal, and it is a tough one, is to make it easier for Cultural Heritage Institutions to understand and express the impact of their activities.
We want to share with you Workers Underground: a film and case study that we have developed as a result of a research project which explored the impact of our long-running service: Europeana 1914-1918.
