In an era where natural history and environmental education inadequacy in formal and informal contexts is becoming an increasingly challenging issue, harvesting the potential of European digital libraries appears as a very attractive option.
Linked Heritage has 3 main objectives: To contribute large quantities of new content to Europeana; to demonstrate enhancement of quality of content; and to enable improved search, retrieval and use of Europeana content.
meSch has the goal of designing, developing and deploying tools for the creation of tangible interactive experiences that connect the physical dimension of museums and exhibitions with relevant digital cross-media information in novel ways.
3D-ICONS proposes to digitise a series of architectural and archaeological masterpieces of world and European cultural significance and provide 3D models and related digital content to Europeana, with the aim of contributing to the critical mass of highly engaging content available to users.
APEnet contributed digital images of documents and its associated descriptions to Europeana, enabling users to explore not only archival materials but also related holdings in Europe's museums and galleries, film-archives, libraries and audio-visual organisations.
