  • This is how it started… And where we are now (in numbers).
  • This is what the end-users want.
  • Focus will shift from quantity to quality!!!
  • Europeana will become part of the Linked Open Data cloud. Allowing others to enrich their data with our data and allowing our data to be enriched by the data of others!!!
  • A new role for Europeana from 2011 will be to re-distribute metadata within the Europeana network and with select non-commercial partners. That way the content will be available on more websites maximising the chances of users finding their way to the content.
  • API-pilot. searches also Europeana via our API.
  • The Europeana group project EUScreen has developed a Wordpress plug-in that functions as a Search Widget for Europeana.
  • Jeremy Ottevanger of the Imperial War Museum has developed the “Cultural enrichment mashificator”. It uses a semantic engine to extract named entities (persons.places) and subjects and then sends those as queries to Europeana and various other APIs. The reasults are displayed in a slide-show.
  • Europeana partners who don’t have the resources to custom integrate Europeana features or content into their own services can easily configure and create a Europeana search widget which they can include on their own site. This will allow their users to directly search Europeana from the Europeana partner’s site. If all 1500 Europeana data providers link to Europeana and through Europeana to each other it will raise traffic and increase SEO for everyone!!!
  • Europeana source code is open.
  • We encourage clear licensing, open access, open data and a vigorous Public Domain.
  • A Europeana Licensing Framweork has been developed and is being implemented. Together with Creative Commons we have developed the Public Domain Mark.
  • Through the facilitation of Europeana The Great War Archive will be extended to collect also information from Germany and France. All content will find its way to Europeana.
  • Through virtual exhibitions physically separated items can be presented together. Unlike the Europeana portal exhibited items include full digital objects (images, audio, video, texts). Europeana is interested to work with partners to co-create and co-curate exhibitions!!!
