We are committed to sharing best practices and recommendations that relate to the work of the EuropeanaTech community. Here is a selection of useful resources.

Report on Innovative Multilingual Information Access.

Structural ontology

A useful write-up of all updates made to the Europeana Data model (EDM) in recent years.

Semantic Enrichment

A series of recommendations on multilingual search and enrichment, including those from the EuropeanaTech Task Force on multilingual semantic enrichment.

Functional specifications for social semantic functions, with a report and links to first implementations.

Non-semantic enrichment

This report describes updates made to two crowd-sourcing (annotation) tools, Waisda? and Annotorious, making annotations more "semantic" (by using vocabularies such as thesauri) and easier to integrate with Europeana.
