  • Towards Europeana for Researchers
  • Europeana ‘research’ Cloud will be developingtools, services and undertaking dissemination thatestablish closer links with research communities 73
  • Europeana for research use1. To provide access, via Europeana, to 2.4m new metadata records and 5m research– focused digital items from across European universities, libraries, data centres and publishers.2. To develop a digital platform, named Europeana Research, to discover and use European research content3. Via this cloud, provide tools and services for researchers that permit innovative research that exploits digitised content in Europeana.
  • Assessing Researcher Needs in the Cloud and Ensuring Community Engagement Agiatis Benardou (DCU – Athena RC), Costis Dallas (DCU – Athena RC), Sally Chambers (DARIAH-EU)To identify and define the Humanities and Social Sciences research communities that will besupported via the Europeana CloudTo develop an effective research content strategy for Europeana, based on an evidence-based account of usefulness of Europeana and The European Library resources for researchin the Humanities and Social SciencesTo improve the understanding of digital tools, research processes and content used in theHumanities and Social Sciences, thus informing the development of tools and aggregation ofcontent in the Europeana CloudTo actively engage the Humanities and Social Sciences research communities in establishinguser requirements for the development of Europeana Cloud
