  • Existing Portal and processes based on outmoded technologies - overlapping user groups with Europeana No integration with research libraries. Potential for them to go their own way Little contact between CERL, LIBER and CENL >> Europeana Libraries created within this context
  • How to change the footage and place your organisation logo: click on ‘View”, then on ‘Master”, then on “Slide Master”. You can now remove the “Place your organisation logo here”-box and insert your own logo. When you are done, click on “Close Master View”. The changes appear in all footages.

  • The Successes of Europeana Libraries

    1. 1. The successes of Europeana Libraries Project Review, Den Haag, February 2013 Louise Edwards, The European Library (Project Coordinator 2011) Alastair Dunning, The European Library (Project Coordinator 2012)
    2. 2. Europeana Libraries • Some background • The aims of the project • 1 – Ingesting content • 2 – Incorporating full text • 3 – Creating a sustainable library aggregator • The next steps
    3. 3. Existing European Library portal harvesting via outmoded technologies
    4. 4. No European Library contactwith Research Libraries(nor Europeana)
    5. 5. Europeana Libraries January 2011 – December 2012 Coordinated by The European Library (the library aggregator for Europeana) 19 partners
    6. 6. Europeana Libraries WP1 Project management, coordination and monitoring (Mary Rowlatt, MDR Partners) WP2 Modelling the library landscape (Martin Moyle, University College London) WP3 Aggregating research library content for Europeana (Andreas Juffinger, The European Library)
    7. 7. Europeana Libraries WP4 Extending The European Library aggregation infrastructure (José Borbinha, Instituto Superior Tecnico) WP5 Enhancing searchability of existing library content (Valentine Charles, The European Library) WP6 Dissemination, communication and promotion (Aubéry Escande, The European Library)
    8. 8. The aims of the project 1. Bring to Europeana the digital collections of some of Europe’s leading research libraries from 11 countries 2. Be the first project to offer digital collections where the text will be fully searchable 3. Establish systems and processes capable of ingesting and indexing significant quantities of digitised material … The outcome will be an efficient and effective library-domain aggregator service for Europeana
    9. 9. Medieval Manuscripts from Oxford, Complutense (Madrid), Belgrade and Uppsala
    10. 10. Early Modern Books from Sibiu, Zurich and Vienna, amongst others.
    11. 11. Google Books Ghent, Oxford, Bavarian State Library, Ghent. 2m+ metadata records
    12. 12. DART Europe (Ph.D. Theses - 67,868 records) Directory of Open Access Journals (915,013 records)
    13. 13. Provided links to 5.6m different digital objects
    14. 14. 19 providers have made metadata available for harvesting Material from over 75 research libraries included
    15. 15. 25mpages of text adapted for incorporation into the new European Library portal
    16. 16. 2.6m pages from Národní knihovna ČR 8.2m pages from Bibliothèque nationale de France 3mpages frm Biblioteca Nacional de España

    18. 18. Need evidence facts on tech infrastructure …
    19. 19. "We are involved here in Switzerland with two national projects and that gives us some experience with collaboration but this – on a European level – is quite new for us. As a Swiss library, we have almost no possibilities to take part in European projects. We want to gain experience in technical workflows and it’s also very important for us that we have more visibility of our collections outside of Switzerland." Dr. Urs Fischer, Chief Librarian of the Special Collections of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich
    20. 20. Shared governance and organisation between CENL, LIBER and CERL
    21. 21. A technical infrastructure also requires a sustainable business model The project Business Plan directs the future business model of The European Library
    22. 22. The next steps •Libraries remain the most important aggregator for Europeana
    23. 23. Some evidence on TEL as research focussed … some stats on users ?
    24. 24. Research and national library connection forged at European level
    25. 25. Europeana Libraries as a springboard for further project – Europeana Cloud and Europeana Newspapers
    26. 26. Research and national library connection forged at European level “The launch of the new European Library website is an exciting event that represents another important development in the way researchers can gain access to digitised sources from Europe’s national and research libraries. The launch also holds a special significance for the National Library of Wales as we are named as a contributor to the European Library for the first time. As an institution we are proud to be able to extend access to some of our most important digital collections to the European stage” Andrew Green, Chief Librarian, National Library of Wales
