On the Importance of Semantic Contextualisation in Europeana

"Europeana.eu is about ideas and inspiration. It links you to 6 million digital items.“ This is the opening statement taken from the Europeana WWW-site, and it clearly is concerned with the mission of Europeana – without, however, being over-explicit as to the precise nature of that mission. Europeana's current logo, too, has a programmatic aspect: the slogan “Think Culture” clearly again is related to Europeana's mission and at same time seems somewhat closer to the point: 'thinking' culture evokes notions like conceptualisation, reasoning, semantics and the like.
