    • 1. Work Package 1 Agiatis Benardou, Digital Curation Unit, “ATHENA” R.C. Athens, March 19th 2014
    • 2. WP1 Objectives To identify and define the Humanities and Social Sciences research communities that will be supported via the Europeana Cloud To identify and define the Humanities and Social Sciences research communities that will be supported via the Europeana Cloud To develop an effective research content strategy for Europeana, based on an evidence-based account of usefulness of Europeana and The European Library resources for research in the Humanities and Social Sciences To develop an effective research content strategy for Europeana, based on an evidence-based account of usefulness of Europeana and The European Library resources for research in the Humanities and Social Sciences To improve the understanding of digital tools, research processes and content used in the Humanities and Social Sciences, thus informing the development of tools and aggregation of content in the Europeana Cloud To improve the understanding of digital tools, research processes and content used in the Humanities and Social Sciences, thus informing the development of tools and aggregation of content in the Europeana Cloud To actively engage the Humanities and Social Sciences research communities in establishing user requirements for the development of Europeana Cloud To actively engage the Humanities and Social Sciences research communities in establishing user requirements for the development of Europeana Cloud
    • 3. Research Communities Identification Aim: to identify and define groups of researchers working in a common subject domain that is either part of the Humanities or Social Sciences, who use similar computational methods to create, analyse and disseminate a certain content type of a digital resource that will be supported via Europeana Cloud.
    • 4. The Humanities Communities Archaeology History Law Linguistics Musicology Philosophy
    • 5. The Social Sciences Communities Economic & Social History Sociology Political Science Human/Economic/Political /Cultural Geography Gender Studies (Social) Anthropology
    • 6. The Research Communities Advisory Board Leif Isaksen, Lecturer in Digital Humanities, University of Southampton Rob Kitchin, Professor of Geography, NUI Maynooth Karina van Dalen-Oskam, Professor of Computational Literary Studies, University of Amsterdam
    • 7. State of the art on scholarly content use •Increasingly greater engagement of humanists and socials scientists with digital content. •New trend of several European initiatives aiming for online, free access to dispersed resources. •Significant impact of digital content in the traditional speed of the research practices. •Issues of Metadata, Copyright, Enhanced Access and Enlarged Digital Collections when dealing with data.
    • 8. Digital research practices/digital tools •Apparent disciplinary differences on the measure of engagement of humanists and social scientists with digital research practices. •Online working and tools that can be accessed online via a web browser are fundamental to the concept of a Cloud system. •Essential Cross-links of Research Practices and Tools indicates their interaction in the scholarly lifecycle. • Enhanced abilities for Searching, Collecting, Analysing, Disseminating and Collaborating provided by new digital methods via innovative digital tools.
    • 9. The Research Communities Web Survey Participants - Primary field 9

    • 15. User Engagement I: Liaison with EU Infrastructures and Networks
    • 16. Further Work: The DARIAH-EU Survey 16
    • 17. User Engagement II: The Expert Forums •Case Studies (Dublin, June 2013) •Tools and Content for Social Sciences Research (Gothenburg, October 2013) •Tools and Content for Humanities Research (Amsterdam, November 2013)
    • 18. Expert Fora Reports Key Recommendations: • user ranking of metadata (encouragement of contributors for complete metadata); functionality for adding annotations, comments, and user-enhanced metadata to records (Social Sciences); • more transparent citation methods (Social Sciences); • multi-lingual resources (translational services) (History, Archaeology); • improvements on date ranges (History, Archaeology); • spatial and temporal mappings of results (History, Archaeology); • refined search functionality and additional filters (Humanities); • an approach to additional content that focuses on quality in few areas/subjects/topics rather than quantity in many; moving from exploration and discovery to in-depth descriptions and interconnectedness (Humanities); • stepping up development for interaction and connection with users / user groups (Humanities).

    • 23. Moving towards Europeana Research? Our user –centred approach revealed considerable differences in the research methods and tools employed by various research communities, as well as their interaction with the content. Our user –centred approach revealed considerable differences in the research methods and tools employed by various research communities, as well as their interaction with the content. Need for sur-mesure, tools to annotate, organize, visualize, enrich, disseminate Europeana/TEL content in accordance with personal or collaborative work. Need for sur-mesure, tools to annotate, organize, visualize, enrich, disseminate Europeana/TEL content in accordance with personal or collaborative work. Europeana Research will allow export of data, but primarily be a platform for others to build tools on top of the existing and ever- expanding content.

    • 24. Where do we go from here? •Matching Europeana Content to Research Communities •Content Strategy Development •User Requirements in the Humanities and the Social Sciences •Tools Evaluation in collaboration with WP3 •Further ensuring community engagement •Moving closer to the Europeana Research platform
