Centralised approach in order to monitor the progress and quality as well as facilitate the involvement of the content providers in many phases.
Stores original metadata including links to vocabularies and authorities.
Rich intermediate EBUcore schema in order to map as many values as possible from the proprietary content providers’ schemes.
User friendly web tools that facilitate harvesting, mapping, normalising and packaging the metadata for Europeana.
We can receive your data in these ways:
Data is stored in XML structure.
MANUALLY map Providers fields to well known schema. The tool enables mapping to EUScreen elements (UI level) and storing to EBUcore schema which everybody has to support. The mapping transformations will be stored and the provider will be able to edit them at any point if necessary.
Support value concatenation (many-to-one mappings) and conditional mappings.
Providers that have metadata in supported known formats might be able to omit this step (use stored transformations to well known standards).
Automatically check and report on Content Provider’s data (i.e. missing values, malformed data)
Error reports and warnings from the tool can be used to edit semantic mappings, value mappings and/or edit items until the Provider’s data successfully passes the Quality control checks.
Provider will be able to do a preview of items (item metadata will be displayed as it will appear in the Europeana website).
The tool provides detailed analysis and statistics of metadata contributed by a provider. (i.e. number of items imported, total values per field etc).
