In this post, we explore Europeana XX, a new Generic Services project focused on the 20th century and its social, political and economical changes as documented in photographs, videos, and works of art.
Europeana has been supporting the discovery of Ireland’s cultural heritage for over a decade and in this post we explore some of the more recent developments, including the work of the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) as the new national aggregator.
The Europeana Common Culture project aims to improve the content from Europeana’s national aggregators, as well as support their collaboration and deliver a rich programme of events focused on building capacity in the cultural sector. In this guest post, Larissa Borck from theSwedish National Heritage Board - a Common Culture project partner - discusses their open-access webinar series, ‘Open GLAM now!’, which explores how museums and cultural heritage institutions can open up to audiences with the help of digital data and media.
There are tens of millions of items on Europeana Collections but we know that not all of them are easy to find or easy to use and that can be frustrating. So we’re working hard to improve that.
How easy an item is to find or to use depends in part on the types and quality of the information we have about it. This post looks at how Europeana is supporting cultural heritage institutions to improve the digital files (content) and the accompanying information (metadata) that they provide for both new and existing collections.
