@EuropeanaEU reminds me of the fact that Europe is somuch more than bail outs and crisis. Keep up the goodwork!https://twitter.com/PMvanGent/status/316478600683610113 <https://twitter.com/PMvanGent/status/316478600683610113>Tuesday, June 25, 2013But all from the heart! That is really fantastic and a clear sign that Europeana has becomemuch more than a project and has really started developing into a movement.
ValueTuesday, June 25, 2013But in order to keep that movement going we will have to be much more articulate about thevalue that we can create through Europeana. For the cultural institutions, for targetedaudiences like tourism, education, research. So what is the value that Europeana can bring?In fact, what IS Europeana?
Is it a website?Tuesday, June 25, 2013Is it a portal? Well, it started that way. But are we in a position to build the best portal in theworld? Is that where our value lies?
Phase 1: AggregationTuesday, June 25, 2013Lets have a quick look at what we have achieved together over the last 5 years.
LibrariesEuropeanaDrents archiefLouvreTELMuseumsArchivesCC-BY-NCTuesday, June 25, 2013We started in 2008 with the aim to create a ‘single point of access’ to our shared heritage.
Tuesday, June 25, 2013The most visible aspect of that was the portal.
NetworkAggregation infrastructureData ModelTuesday, June 25, 2013But the underlying value of that excercise was probably much greater: have havecreated a thriving network of hundreds of professionals from libraries, museums,archives and increasingly creative industries, who join forces to do new meaningfulthings on the internet. We have setup an aggregation infrastructure that is able tohandle many thousands of contributions from every corner of Europe and beyond.And we have agreed on a datamodel that is scalable, and ﬁt for the challenges of the21st century.
Is it a sharedinfrastructure to solveissues together?Tuesday, June 25, 2013Is it instead a shared infrastructure that allows us to solve issues together that we wouldnever been able to solve before on such a scale?
Phase 2: DistributionTuesday, June 25, 2013But that was only the beginning.
Tuesday, June 25, 2013We soon realised that having data available in a uniform format would not be enoughto meet the needs of an increasingly savvy audience of consumers.
Tuesday, June 25, 2013The ﬁrst thing we needed to agree on was to change the licensing on the metadata. We endedup agreeing on one of the most open licensing form available, the Public Domain Dedication.This was extremely challenging, and took a leap of faith, but we did it.
Tuesday, June 25, 2013This is allowing many more audiences to use the metadata to their own beneﬁt and thatof the participating institutions. Currently over 750 organisations, commercial and non-commercial, are using our API.
Tuesday, June 25, 2013We are now looking into segmenting these audiences
Tuesday, June 25, 2013So that we can better cater to their speciﬁc needs.
Tuesday, June 25, 2013We are now many websites.
Tuesday, June 25, 2013But more importantly we have developed a scalable mechanism
Tuesday, June 25, 2013For others who are much better equipped to do useful things with.
LicensingDistributed accessUGCTuesday, June 25, 2013We have developed an infrastructure for licensing metadata, distributed access, and to a certain extend UGC.
How:CollectiveInnovativeNetworkedScalableTuesday, June 25, 2013Most of the value that we can create in the Europeana context seems to be not the things wedo, but HOW we do them. We seems to be most successful when we develop formats that arecollective, innovative, networked, and scalable.
Phase 3:Core Service PlatformTuesday, June 25, 2013So how do we move into the next phase?
Can we be a HadronCollider?Tuesday, June 25, 2013
