  • 2., Europe’s cultural heritage portalAudiovisualcollectionsNationalAggregatorsRegionalAggregatorsArchivesThematiccollectionsLibraries26M objects from 2,200 European galleries, museums, archives and libraries
  • 3. What types of objects does Europeana gives access to?Text Image Video Sound 3D

  • 6. Better accomodate domain practicesMuseums , e.g. ATHENA aggregatorCRM – LIDOArchives – e.g. APEnetEADLibraries – e.g. The European LibraryMARCWorkshops were organized with experts during EDM designRunning « data watch » effort with partner projects, task forces
  • 7. Keep in touch with friendsRe-use of existing standardsCoordinate model development with other projectsDomain-specific projects (CARARE – archaeology)Similar initiatives to Europeana (DPLA)Having a data model that is in principle flexible and re-uses a lotof stuff helps
  • 8. Easy vs. hard requirements for EDM1. Distinguish the real object from its digital representation2. Distinguish the object from its metadata record3. Allow multiple records for same objectcontaining potentially contradictory statements about an object1. Support for objects that are composed of other objects2. Be compatible with different levels of descriptionGeneric/interoperable vs. specific/domain-centered1. Flexible support for describing contextual resources, including concepts2. Re-use and extend elements from existing standardsMain obstacle is maybe lack of agreed practice
  • 9. Challenge #1: getting good data, still!Providers contributing richer and interoperable data in EDMEnrichmentEuropeana and third-parties?Validation (open world) and quality measuresVersioning and persistence of living Europeana data
  • 10. Challenge #2: interoperability, still!Data in• Mapping EDM to what Europeana providers want or can use• Sharing patternsData out• Identifying data consumer needs• Different channels with their own flavors / levels of complexityE.g.
  • 11. Challenge #3: opening data, still!The Europeana network is doing very good A licensing framework for metadata and content Pushing openness across the boardThere will always be interesting corner-cases Some institutions regard metadata as content User-generated data (annotations) could raise issues
  • 12. Challenge #4: measuring valueAn old friend, too
  • 13. Many challenges are old foes, in factCf. W3C Library Linked Data report
  • 14. Thank you
