Europeana Cloud: The Essential Facts

2,053

Published on

Everything you need to know about the Europeana Cloud project, a Best Practice Network that is establishing a cloud-based system for Europeana and its aggregators. LIBER is a partner in the project. This presentation is designed to be used as a template, for anyone who needs to share information about the project at conferences and workshops.

Europeana Cloud: The Essential Facts

  1. 1. Essential Facts Name, title Date
  2. 2. 3-year project ……………………………………………………............. Coordinated by The European Library and running until January 2016. Funded by the EU ………………………………………………………..…........... Total project cost of 4.75 million euros (80% from the EU under the ICT-PSP programme).
  3. 3. 35 Partners Sweden: Gothenburg University Finland: Finnish National Archives Denmark: Royal Library and National Library of Copenhagen University Ireland: Trinity College Dublin United Kingdom: MDR Partners, National Library of Wales, The Open University, University College London, University of Edinburgh The Netherlands: Europeana, The European Library, CERL, LIBER, OAPEN, KNAW, Kennisland, Free University of Amsterdam, Tilburg University Belgium: Ariadne Foundation, Catholic University of Leuven, Free University of Brussels Poland: Polish Digital Libraries Foundation Germany: Bavarian State Library, Central and East European Online Library, Open Knowledge Foundation Deutschland, University of Bielefeld, DARIAH Italy: National Research Council, Cinecitta’ Luce Spa Spain: Dialnet Foundation Czech Republic: National Technical Library Hungary: University of Debrecen Romania: University of Sibiu Croatia: Croatian Academy for Science & Arts Greece: University of Patras, Athena Research and Innovation Centre
  4. 4. Together, we’re on a mission. We want to help the Europeana ecosystem by: Making the metadata richer Getting more people to use that metadata and the related content Giving aggregators and data providers a cheaper, more sustainable infrastructure for storing metadata and content National Library of France, Public Domain
  5. 5. Helping aggregators and data providers. We aim to create: Flexible and scalable data processing facilities More transparent monitoring and costing Ability for third parties to enrich your metadata (eg. find place names, convert formats) Change tracking, versioning support and globally unique identifiers A workspace for aggregation partners National Library of Wales, CC BY-NC-SA
  6. 6. We have 3 main tasks Wellcome Library, CC BY-NC
  7. 7. 1. Building a new aggregation system. Metadata currently travels in one direction, towards Europeana. Libraries National Aggregators e.g. The European Library Regional Aggregators Archives e.g. Culture Grid, Culture.fr Audiovisual collections Thematic collections e.g. APEX e.g. EUScreen, European Film Gateway e.g. Musées Lausannois e.g. Judaica Europeana, Europeana Fashion
  8. 8. Our alternative is a shared, cloud-based infrastructure.  This would allow members of Europeana Cloud to: 1.Upload metadata 2.Define who can use that metadata and in what ways (download, annotate, delete) 3.Give third parties access via APIs
  9. 9. It will include version control…  All versions have their own unique IDs  Provider Local IDs and Europeana Cloud IDs are mapped to each other  You keep full control of your version in Europeana Cloud
  10. 10. …and will be built on a Hybrid-cloud structure.  We will be able to access public-cloud services on demand.  This will allow us to quickly adapt to changes in workload.  We can also shift resources to the public if this would save us money.  The non-public part of We will develop tools to manage resource reallocation and data transfers between the two cloud types. our cloud will be Community based.  Users will access it via an API from systems installed in their data centres.  Advantages: technically robust, potential for high efficiency gains and savings
  11. 11. Initially, three aggregators will test this new infrastructure. The European Library ……………………………………………………………….......................... Contributing 120m bibliographic records and 20m metadata items. www.theeuropeanlibrary.org Polish Digital Libraries Federation ……………………………………………………………............. Contributing 1.5m metadata items. ........ www.fbc.pionier.net.pl Europeana ……………………………………………………………….................................. Contributing 30m metadata items. . www.europeana.eu
  12. 12. 2. Defining the principles of engagement.  We’re working on a number of structural and legal issues. For example: 1. A business model to ensure economic viability. 2. A revised legal framework. 3. Working out the rules for membership of eCloud 4. A roadmap (integrated with Europeana’s strategic plan) that outlines how to attract partners National Library of France, Public Domain
  13. 13. 3. Developing Europeana Research  APIs will allow third parties to build on top of data in eCloud 1. Europeana Research - set of thirdparty tools exploiting data in eCloud 2. Focus on research communities in arts, humanities and social sciences 3. Partners in- and outside the project will contribute metadata (and content as well) to be part of eCloud and the tools National Library of France, Public Domain
  14. 14. Timeline Prototype of content cloud created (M18). Prototype of metadata cloud created (M12). 2013 Minimum requirements outlined (M10). Technical Infrastructure Complete (M30). Governance structure complete (M28). 2014 Operating Principles determined (M18). 2015 Europeana Research unveiled (M36). 2016 eCloud deployed as sustainable service (M36).
