DSI-4 Annual Report 2019

As an initiative of the European Union, the Europeana Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI) showcases and provides online access to Europe’s cultural and scientific heritage through the Europeana Collections platform and supports cultural heritage institutions as they adapt to this digital age.

The service is provided by a consortium of 23 partners, coordinated by the Europeana Foundation. Here are some significant highlights from the first year of DSI-4 (September 2018 - August 2019).
