These webinars are part of a series held by the Swedish National Heritage Board and the Digital Humanities initiative at Uppsala University, on 10, 11 and 16 June 2020. The series was conceived within a project (led by Dr Åsa Larsson, Swedish National Heritage Board; Dr Anna Foka, Uppsala University) supported by the Europeana Research Grants Programme. The webinars focus on finding, accessing, using and enriching metadata in digitised collections, with the aim of increasing researcher-museum collaborations. The video outputs are licensed CC-BY-SA.

Mia Carlsson & Marcus Smith, Swedish National Heritage Board - SOCH/K-Samsök – Aggregating national collection metadata

This talk presents how the Swedish National Heritage Board works with the aggregators SOCH/K-Samsök and Europeana, which collect links and metadata from digitised collections at museums and archives. They will outline the process of making this data available and searchable, explain which data is delivered to SOCH and Europeana respectively and the differences in content and structure between the two platforms. What contributions are needed to make the digitised content of collections more accessible and usable? What should researchers know about the digital resources already available to them and the public? This talk took place on 16 June 2021.
