  • Topic: Content Development Strategy What is content for Europeana? Answer: Metadata and previews/thumbnails, NOT digital objects Based on: The Europeana 5-year Strategy, our 2011 Business Plan and our Content Analysis Main goals of the strategy: Increase usage through re-distribution and interaction, Improve quality, Address imbalances
  • The Europeana Strategic Plan Aggregate: Shift towards quality, address imbalances, masterpieces, Facilitate: Research&amp;Development w. focus on Linked Open Data and mulit-linguality, Knowledge sharing Distribute: Improve the portal, BUT focus on putting content in the workflow of the user via SEO, widgets, APIs, Social media campaigns, Linked Open Data, OAI-PMH. Creation of a Europeana Information Space together with national and thematic portals and working with the Wikipedia communities. Engage: Under moderated forms make it possible for users to annotate content and upload content, provide context through themed virtual exhibitions
  • Content Analysis Strengths: Photoography, Books&amp;Newspapers&amp;Letters, Historical artefacts (archaeology&amp;ethnography), Art (paintings&amp;drawings) Weaknesses: NW Europeana imbalance (French, German, Swedish), Lack of audio-visual (especiall film) and audio Quality: Many records with very sparse metadata, many records with broken links and no thumbnails
  • Actions based on the Content Analysis Quality improvement plan: Improve documentation and launch an Ingestion Centre, Check and fix broken links and thumbnails, work with providers on Persistent Identifiers, more mandatory metadata fields, encourage clear rights/license statements, enrich data via thesauri and authority files, encourage upload of Masterworks from all Europeana countries Long term: Encourage the creation of national aggregators for ALL Europeana states, find licensing solutions and PublicPrivatePartnerships to get in-copyright and orphan works into Europeana
  • Long term: Encourage the creation of national aggregators for ALL Europeana states, Find licensing solutions and PublicPrivatePartnerships to get in-copyright and orphan works into Europeana
  • Key actions: Increase use of Europeana content (metadata+previews) through re-use on other sites: Search engines (via Search Engine Optimisation including Semantic Markup) Portals and larger institutions (via Search APIs and Linked Open Data) Strategic partnerships with publishers, educational sites, cultural tourism and Wikipedia Bloggers and small institutions (via Widgets for search and object embedding), Social media sites (Share function, Widgets, Social objects)
  • Increase use of Europeana content (metadata+previews) through re-use on other sites: Search engines (via Search Engine Optimisation including Semantic Markup) Portals and larger institutions (via Search APIs and Linked Open Data) Strategic partnerships with publishers, educational sites, cultural tourism and Wikipedia Bloggers and small institutions (via Widgets for search and object embedding), Social media sites (Share function, Widgets, Social objects)
  • In order to facilitate distribution and enrichment/quality improvement of content via Linked Open Data without we need to make Europeana metadata Open. Thus the new suggested Data Agreements. This would also put heritage metadata in line with the European Union’s Public Sector Information Directive.
  • Why open metadata? Because Europeana and its services is like judging the book by its cover: The user can see the cover image, find out the writer and title, see the subject of the book, When and where it was published and by whom and also find a short description of the contents of the book. Based on this information the user must decide whether to buy the book or not The actual book remains on the Europeana Data Providers site and its copyright status is decided entirely by the provider To make the copyright status clear to the users and machines reading the metatdata, use the Europeana rights field Keep the Europeana Public Domain Charter in mind when setting rights and licences! So to “sell” as many books to the users Europeana needs to get the cover to as many users as possible In effect: To make Europeana metadata available in as many channels as possible
