  • 1. Europeana Cloud LoCloud Plenary, November 2013, London Alastair Dunning, The European Library http://pro.europeana.eu/web/europeana-cloud #cloud_EU / @europeana_cloud
  • 2. Two challenges for the Europeana ecosystem
  • 3. 1) Making metadata richer 2) Getting more users of that metadata (and the related content)
  • 4. Europeana Cloud aims to address these challenges
  • 5. Current situation for metadata aggregation Europeana Aggregator Aggregator <---- Data Providers--->
  • 6. The situation does not fully exploit the value of the Europeana network and its metadata and content Europeana Aggregator Aggregator <---- Data Providers--->
  • 7. Europeana Cloud project tries to rethink this situation Europeana Polish Digital Libraries Federation The European Library Testing and building a shared infrastructure Europeana Cloud
  • 8. These three aggregators are piloting the Europeana Cloud system The European Library – 120m items of bibliographic records, 20m metadata items * Polish Digital Library Federation – 1.5m metadata items Europeana – 30m metadata items * - metadata items refer to metadata records that points to a digitised object
  • 9. Europeana Cloud allows members to Europeana Polish Digital Libraries Federation The European Library Upload metadata to a shared system Define who can use that metadata and in what ways (download, edit, delete, annotate)
  • 10. Europeana Cloud allows third parties to Europeana Polish Digital Libraries Federation The European Library Access that metadata, via APIs, according to conditions of owner (download, edit, delete, annotate)
  • 11. Ease o s io n t ega ? gr -ag bers Sub em m for f s ha ring? dat d che l? i Enr ntia e pot Europeana Polish Digital Libraries Federation a The European Library Low e r in g co Questions to be asked: Does eCloud make it easier to share data, especially with Europeana? st?

  • 15. But that is not all!
  • 16. We will also investigate how we can build end-user services on top of this infrastructure t ten Con a dat eta &M rs rche a Rese In particular for researchers in humanities and social sciences
  • 17. In scope for the project (Europeana Research): t ten Con European a Research Platform me & a dat ta The project will experiment with the ingestion of content for use in research APIs for third parties Tools and terfaces for in researchers
  • 18. In scope for the project (Europeana Research): Developers will work with APIs give access to the data in eCloud t ten Con European a Research Platform me & a dat ta APIs for third parties Tools and terfaces for in researchers
  • 19. In scope for the project (Europeana Research): From this third-party development work, tools for specific research communities will be available t ten Con European a Research Platform me & a dat ta APIs for third parties Tools and terfaces for in researchers
  • 20. In scope for the project (Europeana Research): Together, these APIs and tools will form Europeana Research platform t ten Con European a Research Platform me & a dat ta APIs for third parties Tools and terfaces for in researchers
  • 21. In long term, eCloud will allow others to build tools on the data it holds s strie u e ind iv reat C GLAM
  • 22. Europeana Cloud project also addresses
  • 23. Governance: How will eCLoud be run
  • 24. Business Model: How it will be paid for
  • 25. Other stakeholders: What might non project members want from eCloud ?
  • 26. Establishing the rules for how other organisations can join once the project finishes
  • 27. How do we link eCloud and LoCloud ?
  • 28. Different projects but using same technical infrastructure
  • 29. LoCloud Tools and services (MINT, microservices etc) could be deployed in Europeana Cloud
  • 30. eCloud can provide long-term post-project structure to maintain the data and services
  • 31. Cloud Coordination Group is working on these issues
  • 32. Project Details Start Date – February 2013 End Date – January 2016 Total Project Cost – 4.75m Euros EU Funding Contributing 3.8m Euros (80%) Matched Funding 950k (20k) co-funded by the CIP-ICT Policy Support Programme http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp CIP-ICT-PSP-2012-6 - Project number 325091 the author is solely responsible for it and that it does not represent the opinion of the Community and that the Community is not responsible for any use that might be made of information contained therein
