Today we hear from esteemed wiki leaders and Wikipedians Isla Haddow-Flood and Florence Devouard as they tackle the gender (digital) content gap and advocate for and promote the contributions of women and girls to our digital archives and media spaces.
We believe that a stronger link between the cultural and education sectors is both vital and mutually beneficial. That’s why, over the last year or so, we (the Europeana Foundation’s Reuse team) have been asking questions to our educational audiences and listening carefully to their answers.
The information we have gleaned will help data providers to better understand and cater to the needs of teachers and students by providing high-quality cultural data in relevant formats and on relevant topics. This will translate into more happy educators and more inspiring examples of reuse of their collections in educational settings of all types.
Discovering inspiring content in Europeana Collections with or without a specific search should be quick and easy. A range of developments over the last year is helping to deliver a better online experience.
