The Europeana Common Culture project has contributed significantly to the development of a well-functioning and sustainable aggregation infrastructure in Europe. We take a look back at what the project has achieved.
In our ‘Professionals in Focus’ series, we speak to Europeana Network Association Members Councillors about their roles, working lives and plans for their time on the Members Council. This month, Alexandra Angeletaki discusses her work at the Norwegian University of Sciences and Technology and perspectives as an archaeologist.
As part of Europeana’s Europe at Work season, the Hunt Museum, Limerick, Ireland, and partners have been exploring the role of the Shannon Hydro-Electric Scheme. The team involved in engaging audiences onsite and online during COVID-19 discuss their approach and the importance of sharing stories of Europe’s industrial heritage.
Towards the end of 2020, OpenGLAM and the Europeana Copyright and Communicators communities organised two translation sprints to make key guidelines and articles about the public domain available to more people in their native languages. We look back on the sprints and share the translations.
Providing seamless access to collections in multiple languages has been a key objective for Europeana since its inception. In this post, we give an update on recent strategic developments at Europeana on this topic and introduce a new issue of EuropeanaTech Insight dedicated to multilingualism in digital cultural heritage.
With the 1st of January each year marking Public Domain Day, this month on Europeana Pro we are exploring the public domain and open access to cultural heritage. In this post, members of the Europeana Network Association Communicators and Copyright communities share some of their favourite public domain works available on the Europeana website.
EuropeanaTech is excited to invite proposals for the assembly of Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning (AI/ML) datasets drawn from the extensive collections on the Europeana website. Two proposals will be selected to receive a financial stipend of €2,500 each, to support the production, documentation and publication of the datasets.
The Europeana website provides access to digital representations of millions of cultural heritage objects from all over Europe, and we want to give our audiences the best possible experience when exploring them. In this post, we tell you how we are working with our aggregators to address the issue of broken links.
In 2020, the Europeana Foundation made its belief in diversity explicit in its organisational statement that ‘cultural heritage empowers us to embrace our diversity and flourish’. This post outlines the approach we are taking to make sure we are indeed embracing diversity and implementing practical measures to embed it in our organisation.
With public events in 2020 largely cancelled, public engagement events have been difficult. We speak with partners in Ireland who have been working on projects collecting stories from the public during the pandemic.
