Europeana Members Councillors have diverse jobs and wide experience across the heritage sector, but are united by their passion for digital cultural heritage. In our ‘Professionals in Focus’ series, we speak to our Councillors about their roles, working lives and plans for their time on the Members Council! This month, James Morley discusses working with data gathered during the centenary of the First World War and the importance of creative experimentation.
The revolution in digital technology and the accessibility to new material via digital storytelling are changing the way researchers are able to look at the period of the First World War. Projects like Europeana 1914-1918, which combines institutional and publicly contributed material, are disrupting the research life cycle and promoting new insights into historical research. Dr. Agiatis Benardou, Senior Researcher at Digital Curation Unit / ATHENA R.C. – a Europeana DSI-4 partner – fills us in.
Are you interested in the unusual and complex jobs in digital cultural heritage? So are we. So each month we are going to take a deep dive into the work of professionals in the sector. This time, we speak with Members Councillor Tamara Butigan about the mines of Bor and her enthusiasm for digitisation.
