Transcript

  • 1. Alastair Dunning, Project Coordinator The European Library The Hague, Aggregation Forum, May 2014
  • 2. 3-year project……………………………………………………............. Coordinated by The European Library and running until January 2016. Funded by the EU ………………………………………………………..…............. Total project cost of 4.75 million euros (80% from the EU under the ICT-PSP programme). Part of the Multi-Sided Platform ……………………………………………………................................ Vision is to embed Europeana Cloud as core part of the ‘multi-sided platform’.
  • 3. The Netherlands: Europeana, The European Library, CERL, LIBER, OAPEN, KNAW, Kennisland, Free University of Amsterdam, Tilburg University Belgium: Ariadne Foundation, Catholic University of Leuven, Free University of Brussels Sweden: Gothenburg University Poland: Polish Digital Libraries Foundation Germany: Bavarian State Library, Central and East European Online Library, Open Knowledge Foundation Deutschland, University of Bielefeld, DARIAH Italy: National Research Council, Cinecitta’ Luce Spa Greece: University of Patras, Athena Research and Innovation Centre Spain: Dialnet Foundation United Kingdom: MDR Partners, National Library of Wales, The Open University, University College London, University of Edinburgh Ireland: Trinity College Dublin Czech Republic: National Technical Library Finland: Finnish National Archives Denmark: Royal Library and National Library of Copenhagen University Croatia: Croatian Academy for Science & Arts Hungary: University of Debrecen Romania: University of Sibiu 35 Partners
  • 4. Together, we’re on a mission. We want to help the Europeana ecosystem by: Giving aggregators and data providers a cheaper, more sustainable infrastructure for storing / managing metadata and content Allowing for more ways for that metadata and content to be exploited I.e., helping build the platform on which more tools can be built National Library of France, Public Domain
  • 5. Helping aggregators and data providers. eCloud aims to provide Ability to manage and share data with Europeana and other aggregators more easily Ability for third parties to enrich your metadata (eg. find place names, convert formats) Allows third parties to access and edit metadata (within limited defined by data owners) Change tracking, versioning support and unique identifiers Experiments with issues related to storage and dissemination of content National Library of Wales, CC BY-NC-SA
  • 6. Building a new aggregation system. Metadata currently travels in one direction, towards Europeana. Audiovisual collections National Aggregators Regional Aggregators Archives Thematic collections Libraries e.g. Musées Lausannois e.g. Culture Grid, Culture.fr e.g. The European Library e.g. APEX e.g. EUScreen, European Film Gateway e.g. Judaica Europeana, Europeana Fashion
  • 7. Our alternative is a shared, cloud-based infrastructure.  This would allow members of Europeana Cloud to: 1.Upload metadata 2.Define who can use that metadata and in what ways (download, annotate, delete) 3.Give third parties access via APIs
  • 8. Europeana Cloud can support Europeana Portal, Labs …
  • 9. … and also other tools and services that make use of data in this Cloud infrastructure
  • 10. eCloud is not the Europeana Portal The Cloud Infrastructure •Is not obligatory •Data can be more than CC0 •Data does not need to be EDM •Data need not be only metadata •Much more granularity in how users can exploit API of Europeana Cloud (ie read / write access) •Permission to read / write can be dictated by data provider / aggregator •Not all data in Europeana Cloud must be exposed via Europeana Portal Copyright, Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery, Exeter City Council
  • 11. Developing Europeana Research  APIs will allow third parties to build on top of data in eCloud 1. Europeana Research - set of third- party tools exploiting data in eCloud 2. Focus on research communities in arts, humanities and social sciences 3. Partners in- and outside the project will contribute metadata (and content as well) to be part of eCloud and the tools National Library of France, Public Domain
  • 12. eCloud will have an operating framework.  We’re working on a number of structural and legal issues. For example: 1. A business model to ensure economic viability. 2. A Cloud Access Framework determining what data can be in Europeana Cloud 3. Working out the rules (‘Operating Guidelines’) for membership of eCloud 4. A roadmap (integrated with Europeana’s strategic plan) that outlines how to attract partners National Library of France, Public Domain
  • 13. The European Library Initially, three aggregators will test this new infrastructure. ……………………………………………………………….......................... Contributing 120m bibliographic records and 20m metadata items. www.theeuropeanlibrary.org Polish Digital Libraries Federation ……………………………………………………………............. ........Contributing 1.5m metadata items. www.fbc.pionier.net.pl Europeana ……………………………………………………………….................................. .Contributing 30m metadata items. www.europeana.eu
  • 14. But expanding at the end of the project Swiss National Library, Europeana Rights Reserved - Free Access Europeana wishes to attract others as members of Europeana Cloud (especially aggregators) Also need to consider relationship to LoCloud project
  • 15. Timeline 20132013 20142014 20152015 Operating Principles determined (M18). Prototype of metadata cloud created (M12). Prototype of content cloud created (M18). Governance structure complete (M28). Technical Infrastructure Complete (M30). Europeana Research unveiled (M36). 20162016 Minimum requirements outlined (M10). eCloud deployed as sustainable service (M36).

  • 17. Alastair Dunning, Project Coordinator The European Library Europeana Cloud Aggregators Forum The Hague, May 2014
  • 18. Today’s meeting begins to shape the requirements of aggregators for using Europeana Cloud. The workshop will 1. Briefly looks at some of the advantages of Europeana Cloud 2. Seeks feedback from aggregators and their reaction to the project 3. Outputs feed directly to a deliverable for the project 4. Part of a longer discussion to ensure Europeana Cloud is usable for aggregators
  • 19. Advantages of Europeana Cloud: Case Study from The European Library (TEL) 1 - eCloud allows provides better data management of formats • One record can be represented in many formats (eg MARC, Dublin Core, EDM • Greater flexibility in handling different formats Wellcome Trust, CC-BY
  • 20. Advantages of Europeana Cloud: Case Study from The European Library 2 - eCloud allows provides better data management of versions • One record can be represented have multiple versions as well as formats • Allows updates from TEL library members to be incorporated Wellcome Trust, CC-BY
  • 21. Advantages of Europeana Cloud: Case Study from The European Library 3 – Sharing with Europeana is easier • Notification automatically sent to Europeana when there is a new EDM representation • As Europeana is part of eCloud they will have access to all our EDM records • Much quicker to share data National Library of Netherland, rights unclear
  • 22. Advantages of Europeana Cloud: Case Study from The European Library 4 – Europeana (and others) can make use of our data • Europeana can take not just EDM but any other data we specify and then push it through their channels – better dissemination (e.g Europeana Research, Thematic Channels) • And not just Europeana … any one with access to eCloud APIs • Opportunity to work more closely with other aggregators Wellcome Trust, CC-BY
  • 23. Advantages of Europeana Cloud: Case Study from The European Library 5 – Direct API access • TEL currently only offers API access to our opensearch index • We can allow authenticated access to our direct data via eCloud  easier for third party re-use OAPEN Foundation, CC BY-NC-ND (3.0)
  • 24. Advantages of Europeana Cloud: Case Study from The European Library 6 – Scaleable for different data types • eCloud allows us to store full text as well • Our current solution (SOLR built on single machine) is not scaleable • eCloud architecture is modular – can store more text Lincolnshire Museums, rights unknown
  • 25. Advantages of Europeana Cloud: Case Study from The European Library 7 – Automated back-up • Modular architecture means all data in eCloud is replicated • If one data centre is unavailable, data is available else where • 100% access to data … National Librrary of Ireland, Reproduction rights owned by National Library of Ireland (!!!)
  • 26. Advantages of Europeana Cloud: Case Study from The European Library Use Cases – Crowdsouring tool • eCloud allows different versions of records • Could store crowdsourced transcriptions of newspapers • Would still need tool on top of eCLoud to provider user interface
  • 27. Advantages of Europeana Cloud: Case Study from The European Library Use Cases – Thematic Collections • Cendari project collection rich descriptions on WW1 and Medieval Manuscripts • Want data from TEL (and other aggregators, esp APEX) • An aggregation of richer, non-EDM data could be created via eCloud and shared with Cendari
  • 28. Advantages of Europeana Cloud: Case Study from The European Library Use Cases – Thematic Collections (2) • Project with League of European Research Universities • Stage 1 - Create sub-set of metadata related to academic journals in law and build related sub-portal • Stage 2 – Harvest full-text and store as related representation in eCloud. Add to sub-portal • Stage 3 – Use third party tools to extract persons, places, subjects, and store in eCLoud. Add to sub-portal
  • 29. Edward de Bono Thinking Hats This workshop structured according to thinking in different ways We will think abuot the project in the following ways White Hat – Facts only Yellow Hat – Only positives Black Hat – Only negatives Blue Hat - Summarising Wellcome Trust, CC-BY
  • 30. White Hat What further factual information do you want to know ? Put questions on post-it notes and then stick them on the wall or board (We might not have answers to all of them) ! We will then try to answer them (20 mins max)
  • 31. Yellow Hat What are the potential benefits of the Cloud Infrastructure ? How might the eCloud help with some of your issues / problems as an aggregator ? How might it improve what you do. Put ideas on post-it notes and then stick them on the wall or board We will then discuss (20 mins max) Jewish Museum London, Rights: Digital image: Jewish Museum London
  • 32. Black Hat What are the potential problems; things you don’t like . What might go wrong and cause difficulty and danger. Put ideas on post-it notes and then stick them on the wall or board “Probably the most powerful and useful of the Hats but a problem if overused.” We will discuss them (20 mins max) University of Oxford, Europeana Rights Reserved - Free Access
  • 33. Blue Hat Summarising If you have to report back to your boss or line manager abuot Europeana Cloud, which three words would you use ? Put them on a post-it note and then we can go and have lunch ! (10 mins max) Walsall Museums, Rights unstated
