Europeana Awareness WP2 End-user engagement - Year 1 review slides


Published on

This WP aims to engage both professionals and end users in conversations around new content, functions and features. This WP implements support for the meaningful inclusion of User Generated Content (UGC) in Europeana and of the distribution of Europeana content in external environments. Specifically, we examine the following three types of end‐user involvement:
[1] Adding context such as stories
[2] Contributing content such as photos, videos and private historical documents
[3] Collaborating with the Wikimedia community for contextualisation and user contribution

  • List the objectives for this reporting period, what was this wp set out to do for the first period? Please try to follow the key objectives that are listed in the Progress Report (D6.1) for your WP for consistency reasons.
  • The first prototype will be ready end of February 2013 The usability tests will take place beginning of March at Europeana, SAT and the public libraries The results will be evaluated and will define the requirements for version 2 which is planned to be delivered around June-July

  • Lessons learnt from the first Period, what went well, what could be improved, etc.
  • The GLAMwiki toolset project is a collaboration between Wikimedia Nederland, Wikimedia UK, Wikimedia France and Europeana, with the goal of providing a set of tools to get materials from GLAM institutions onto Wikimedia Commons in a way that reuse can easily be tracked, and that Commons materials can easily be integrated back into the collection of the original GLAM or even other GLAMs.
  • Are independent national organizations that are rather loosely connected with very few shared projects. There is limited experience, and a lack of best-practices, regarding the organization of IRL-events with multiple Chapters. Events are often organized in a very federate fashion (e.g. Wiki Loves Monument),      e.g. volunteers have freedom to interpret things Are volunteer driven. This mean that: (1) things sometime take more time; (2) the people      we cooperate with cannot be forced to do anything, and must like the topic that you propose. (Sadly there are few active Wikimedia volunteers that are working on art-topics); (3) they can quit whenever (e.g. if they get a new job); (4) They work with it in their spare time so it is central to be clear with what we can offer and what support we can give so that they don’t feel that it is to large commitment. To form the international team and identify what     we in the team could offer took some time. Sometimes have staff (many of them only since a few months). The staffers might not know the volunteers that well yet. In some Chapters the staff create events and invites volunteers, while in other Chapters the events must be initiated from the volunteers. However, all need to involve their volunteers at some point of the event planning. Have their budgets and priorities set every year. As we had no specific event money until 21 November it was hard to convince them to change the Chapters’ priorities to     organize WLPA - a concept they had not heard about earlier.

    21. 21. Lessons learned Europeana can serve as catalyst in the GLAM sector • Organise campaigns (critical mass) • Provide tools and lessons learned (blog) Significant interest from the public for ‘participatory’ projects • Participation in 1914-1918 Specificities to work with the Wikimedia Chapters • Mostly volunteer driven • Define activities autonomously
