  12. 12. www.europeanaconnect.euNew audio content for Europeana• Today (Oct. 2010): there’s not much music in Europeana … : • 66% Images • 32% Text • 1% Video • 1% Audio• Most of Europeana’s audio content has been provided by EuropeanaConnect: • EuropeanaConnect is adding the music dimension to Europeana • Five audio archives are consortium members • Continuous approach to involvement of new audio archives for the entire duration of the project EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010
  13. 13. www.europeanaconnect.euAudio Aggregation Platform (AAP)• Tool for audio aggregation in Europeana • Collects / stores / processes audio and audio-related music data • Serves as OAI Data Provider for Europeana• Stages of the aggregation process: 1. Metadata is mapped to Europeana Semantic Elements / Europeana Data Model 2. Data become linked to AAP classifications/word lists 3. Mapping checked by content owner, approved results tested within content checker 4. Audio files either hosted by AAP or stays with owner 5. Metadata harvested by Europeana, according to their schedule EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010

  23. 23. www.europeanaconnect.euWhat do users really want? EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010
  24. 24. www.europeanaconnect.euUser Orientation – Why, How?• Why: • We want Europeana to be used widely by people • We (= project team members of the Europeana group) are not necessarily identical with these ”people”• How: • Personas • Log file analysis • Surveys • User Testing Methodologies EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010
  25. 25. www.europeanaconnect.euWhat are „Personas“?• Archetypal representations of our usersIn our case:• Combination of personal characteristics along two axis: • Natural search behaviour (navigational / explorative) • How you approach things, personality and preferences • Search literacy • What you know and how experienced you are• Personas are based on: • Existing research: search behaviour, user studies, interaction design • Existing personas from domain of archives, museums and libraries • A personas workshop with participants from several countries EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010
  26. 26. www.europeanaconnect.euPersonas matrix Effortless Search PROFILE 5 PROFILE 3 ”Sven” ”Jukka” PROFILE 4 PROFILE 6 ”Maria” ”William” Navigational Explorative behaviour behaviour PROFILE 9 ”Julia” PROFILE 2 PROFILE 7 ”Sarah” ”Peter” Difficult Search EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010
  27. 27. www.europeanaconnect.euFocusing on the user – how Personas are used• User scenarios: • Short stories that describe someone using a product• One Persona can have several user scenarios • Will maintain their own personality and approach regardless of situation of use• One user scenario can be applied to different Personas • See how they might react differently in an otherwise identical situation• Personas are very useful in order to remember key characteristics of the users Will guide Europeana development process! EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010
  28. 28. www.europeanaconnect.euLog File Analysis• Log File Analysis for Europeana to evaluate the use of the services • How do users really navigate and search in Europeana? • Method: Deep log analysis • Monthly log file analysis reports provided to Europeana EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010
  29. 29. Building theEuropeana Semantic Layer
  30. 30. www.europeanaconnect.euBuild the Europeana Semantic Layer• Goal: Europeana Resources accessible not only via metadata records but as linked data• Open the data silos of cultural heritage metadata and controlled vocabularies• Organise Europeana data space as network of interlinked resources for object discovery and further use• Semantic Layer will allow to • Build innovative interfaces for Europeana • Perform automatic processing of semantically enriched and linked data• Prerequisite for integration of and with other semantically aware WWW services EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010
  31. 31. www.europeanaconnect.euWhat will be linked?• Object Descriptions • Metadata• Object Abstractions • E.g. Thumbnails, TOCs• Existing Structured Resources • Vocabularies etc.• Linked Data in the WWW • E.g. DBpedia, VIAF, LCSH EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010
  32. 32. www.europeanaconnect.euWhat will EuropeanaConnect do?• Build a repository of harvested semantic resources • Vocabularies, classification schemes …• Convert data into semantic representations • Semantic processing will mostly use SKOS• Semantically enrich Europeana content by mapping it to these semantic representations • E.g. Link “Amsterdam” to an URI of Geo-Vocabulary• Enhance the semantic network by identifying new semantic connections between objects / nodes• Automate these workflows to the largest possible scale EuropeanaConnect Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library EVA / MINERVA Conference 2010 Jerusalem, November 16–17, 2010
  33. 33. www.europeanaconnect.euSemantic Data Layer Creation• Inventory of resources of interest / available in the Europeana context for ingestion into the semantic layer• Conversion of first knowledge organization systems • 10 “families” of concept schemes available in RDF • Emphasis on SKOS as representation model • Data made available on Europeana SVN• Initial tests on enriching object representations with linked data resources • Geonames, DBPedia, VIAF … more to come!
