  • Ask which partners currently provides metadata aggregation ? <br />
  • Current europeana ecosystem <br /> Many different systems being run by each different aggregator – there are technical costs and staff costs in running independent systems <br /> But there are transactional costs – costs of tranferring data, checking data. <br /> And what happens if an aggregator wants to take enriched data, or even data from a different source. The end point is always Europeana <br />
  • Different type of system – where aggregators share a technical framework with <br />
  •  What advantages might the aggregation of digitised content from Europeana cultural heritage institutions bring for researchers? What benefits might different levels of authentication over such an aggregation of content permit? What kind of tools could be built on top of that infrastructure and which of them are the most appropriate to support this kind of communities (ie tools for transcription, tools for data analysis, tools for visualising or enriching metadata, tools for sharing)? And, importantly, how might these findings and information relate to other infrastructures, both existing and future ones? <br />

  • Imagined Case Studies – what could a cloud infrastructure do Storage and Back-up: Different nodes within the cloud would act as back up for each member. If your node was unavailable there would always be another copy available else where
  • Imagined Case Studies – what could a cloud infrastructure do Format Shifting: All (or some) content in the cloud in a particular format could be migrated to a new standard
  • Imagined Case Studies – what could a cloud infrastructure do Access Interfaces (I): Developers or publishers could work with specific themes of content (e.g. WW2, history of science, fashion) related to all members’ content in the cloud
  • Imagined Case Studies – what could a cloud infrastructure do Access Interfaces (II) Content not yet in public domain could be made available to restricted communities – depends on authentication system adopted.
  • Imagined Case Studies – what could a cloud infrastructure do Tools and Services: Related content from different members could be made available for transcription, annotation, visualisation
