Welcome to the multilingual tutorial developed by the J-Ark project.

J-Ark, funded under CEF Telecom eArchiving, is a unique initiative dedicated to developing long-term preservation solutions for Jewish heritage archives. It integrates these innovative solutions into the aggregation flow of Judaica Europeana, the thematic aggregator for Jewish heritage operated by the Jewish Heritage Network. By harnessing software components from various European Commission-funded initiatives, J-Ark offers a comprehensive end-to-end preservation solution tailored specifically for small and mid-size cultural heritage institutions.

This tutorial - developed by the project - offers a step-by-step guide for collection and data managers to be able to submit cultural heritage data to and the J-Ark preservation system.

  • Compatibility: Learn how to make your collections compatible with both the Europeana Data Model (EDM) and the E-Ark standard set by the European Commission, ensuring interoperability and accessibility.

  • Services: Explore the tutorial's built-in machine translation and anonymisation services, allowing you to present your collections in multiple languages while addressing privacy requirements.

By following this comprehensive tutorial, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to effectively contribute your cultural heritage collections to Europeana and preserve them for future generations.
