    • The challenge• We need Collections Management Systems to work harder to support the increasingly diverse needs of the museum• Maximising the use of your online collections means delivering them on your site and serving them up for use via multiple channels/API• The purpose of Europeana Inside is to build into your CMS the tools to manage how your collections are shared, with whom and under what conditions• Putting the control of re-use in your handsKE Emu European User Conference – 27th April 2012
    • Museum Museum Collections Management Library System Europeana Library Connection Kits Archive Digital Asset Management System Archive AV Archive Enriched metadata Content providers Technical partners AggregatorsKE Emu European User Conference – 27th April 2012
    • The benefits• Connecting Collections Management and Collections publishing workflows• Europeana, Wikipedia, BBC Digital Public Space, Google History• Maximising the exposure of your online collections• Limiting the risk through granular rights/permissions management• Cleaning up your metadata for re-use• Providing a channel for user-enhanced metadata to flow back to you• Opening up opportunities for income generationKE Emu European User Conference – 27th April 2012
    • The next challenge• Once we have opened up Collections metadata for re-use through multiple channels, we need a way of tracking metrics & impact• This is outside the scope of Europeana Inside, but will form the basis of a future project proposal• Part of a broader discussion about metrics & KPI for online collections – moving from quantity to reach and engagementKE Emu European User Conference – 27th April 2012
    • European Funding• European funding presents a huge opportunity for UK museums wanting to make more active use of their Collections• As long as you aren’t the coordinator, participating in European-funded projects is simple• Participating opens up new networks & partnerships• The European Commission is currently evaluating the possibility of diverting €m into enabling Digitisation in European museums• We need to increase participation in EU funding by UK institutionsKE Emu European User Conference – 27th April 2012
