Portrait of Larissa Borck

Larissa Borck

Research Assistant as Data Management Coordinator Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz Germany Cultural Heritage

How can we together make the Europeana Initiative, both as a platform and network, a rewarding experience? In my view, the quality of the user experience on the platform is directly linked to a resilient and diverse network of professionals. As a Councillor, I want to encourage to reflect together upon issues of representation, biases, and diversity in collections data, dissemination activities, and the network itself.

As a trained cultural anthropologist with a strong network in the European digital cultural heritage sector, I wish to open up GLAM institution by digital means. In my view, this includes licenses as open as possible, high-quality data, rich metadata and participation of diverse audiences. In the past, I have both worked with national aggregators and cultural heritage institutions. With a background in research about digitization of cultural heritage and management of museums, I connect both academic and practice fields.
