The EUscreen project aims to promote the use of television content to explore Europe's rich and diverse cultural history.

It will create access to over 30,000 items of programme content and information, and by developing a number of interactive functionalities and dynamic links with Europeana it will prove valuable to the widest range of cultural, educational and recreational users.

EUscreen started in October 2009 and the project consortium, which includes 28 partner institutions from around Europe, is being co-ordinated by Utrecht University.

  • Dag Johan,
    Interessante presentatie. Goed om te zien dat de combinatie van centrale EUscreen topic- en thesaurusstructuur en de verdere inhoudelijke ontsluiting van de providers van nut blijft voor de gebruikers.
    Groeten,
    Hanneke
