  • 40. Steps to Provide Content
  • 41. What are the technical requirements?
    Metadata mapped to the ESE v3.2.2 Specifications
    This is the Europeana current data model which consists of the Dublin Core (DC) metadata elements, a subset of the DC terms and a set of twelve elements which were created to meet Europeana’s functionality needs.https://version1.europeana.eu/c/document_library/get_file?uuid=c56f82a4-8191-42fa-9379-4d5ff8c4ff75&groupId=10602
    A link to the digital object’s location online
    Also explained in the above document

    See: http://version1.europeana.eu/c/document_library/get_file?uuid=6b52d4be-6a4d-443a-842a-ab991bca2b1f&groupId=10602
    Metadata Mapping & Normalisation Guidelines
    are also provided as normalisation on some values is necessary to enable machine readability. Providers should consult the following document:
    https://version1.europeana.eu/c/document_library/get_file?uuid=58e2b828-b5f3-4fe0-aa46-3dcbc0a2a1f0&groupId=10602
  • 42. How do I validate compliancy with ESE?
    Using the XML v3.2 ESE schema:
    The ESE v3.2 XML Schema is the XML representation of the Europeana Semantic Elements (ESE) specifications v3.2.This schema can be used to validate XML instances of Data Sets to be submitted to Europeana.
    http://version1.europeana.eu/c/document_library/get_file?uuid=104614b7-1ef3-4313-9578-59da844e732f&groupId=10602 and it is available here: http://www.europeana.eu/schemas/ese/ESE-V3.2.xsd
    Using the Content Checker:
    This is a test and validation environment that consists of the Content Ingestor where providers upload their data and the portal that allows them to search and browse these data as if they were using the real Europeana. http://version1.europeana.eu/c/document_library/get_file?uuid=5efae853-74d4-4ca7-a949-90c401c93127&groupId=10602
  • 43. Managing Ingestion by Europeana
    Working closely with aggregators and providers
    Team of 4 ingestion specialists / metadata experts
    Need to work with aggregators to keep scale manageble
    Est. 30.000 C-H institutions in Germany alone, 200K+ in Europe?
    For countries also important to develop sustainable aggregation levels to promote and preserve their cultural heritage
  • 44. Direct provider benefits
    Prestigious initiative
    Endorsement from European Commission
    Erasmus Award 2009
    Content remains within your organisation
    Increase traffic to your site (view content in context)
    Knowledge exchange with professional network
    Metadata standards, best practices, technological innovation
    Popularity among users
    • Loyal user base (60% of survey respondents visiting the site more
    than 5 times);
    • Overall positive ratings for Europeana features and functions
  • EuropeanaLocal
  • 45. Why EuropeanaLocal?
    • EuropeanaLocal a proof of concept regarding the value of local and regionally sourced content
    • 46. But...... a short term approach to short term targets
    • 47. In fact, a Best Practice Network……
    • 48. It is not a sustainable approach; there is no 'ELocal aggregation'
    • 49. Action is needed at national level to aggregate local and regional content metadata
    You need digital content first!
    • Need for viable aggregator business models at national level
    • 50. Start something – ownership/governance can come later
  • What are ELocal partners?
    • One partner per country (new repository/existing aggregator)
    • 51. Heterogeneous organisation types
    Ministry of Culture
    national libraries
    national museums
    national cultural agencies
    regional cultural agencies,
    public libraries,
    local museum,
    research foundation,
    regional digital library provider,
    private sector organisations
  • 52. Elocal partners as aggregators
    • ELocal partners in each country are almost all aggregators, large or small, either
    • 53. already a major national or regional aggregator of local content
    • 54. OR where none exists, they might become the national or regional aggregator of local content
    • 55. OR main task is to ensure that the local and regional content they have aggregated becomes part of larger aggregation
  • EuropeanaLocal: where are we?
    • 70% complete
    • 56. Year 1 was preparation
    • 57. Commission Review of preparatory year (July 2009) was favourable
    • 58. Year 2 was implementation : getting content into Europeana
    • 59. Year 3 focus is encouraging more sustained aggregation of local and regional content: national meetings
    • 60. Potentially important events in moving forward ‘aggregation politics’ in each country
    • 61. Towards a ‘sensible level of aggregation
  • Content from EuropeanaLocal
    • Big opportunity to prove value of local and regional content
    • 62. a great improvement in place-based discovery in Europeana
    • 63. Substantial amounts of content already being ingested by Europeana
    • 64. Content ingested from over 20 countries by end august 2010 ingested already
    • 65. Something from almost every country by Rhine
    • 66. EuropeanaLocalhas already contributed 3.5 million of the c12 million items now in Europeanalargest single source (more by Danube)
    • 67. EuropeanaLocal partners are only a small sample of potential
  • Top ELocal content supplier countries

    100-500,000
