  • Existing Portal and processes based on outmoded technologies - overlapping user groups with Europeana
    No integration with research libraries. Potential for them to go their own way
    Little contact between CERL, LIBER and CENL
    >> Europeana Libraries created within this context

    21. 21. "We are involved here in Switzerland with two national projects and that gives us some experience with collaboration but this – on a European level – is quite new for us. As a Swiss library, we have almost no possibilities to take part in European projects. We want to gain experience in technical workflows and it’s also very important for us that we have more visibility of our collections outside of Switzerland." Dr. Urs Fischer, Chief Librarian of the Special Collections of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich
    22. 22. Some broader results : Shared governance and organisation between CENL, LIBER and CERL

    25. 25. Some broader results : Research and national library connection forged at European level
    26. 26. Europeana Libraries as a springboard for further projects – Europeana Cloud, Europeana Newspapers and Europeana Research platform Closer working practices with ERICs – European Research Infrastructure Consortia, such as DARIAH and CLARIN
    27. 27. Research and “The launch of the new European Library website is an national exciting event that represents another important library connection development in the way researchers can gain access forged to digitised sources from Europe’s national and at European research libraries. The launch also holds a special level significance for the National Library of Wales as we are named as a contributor to the European Library for the first time. As an institution we are proud to be able to extend access to some of our most important digital collections to the European stage” Andrew Green, Chief Librarian, National Library of Wales
