  • At a working level, we operate in a network of aggregators. We can’t work directly with 2,200 organisations, so we rely on aggregators to collect data, harmonise it, and deliver to Europeana. Aggregators are important because they share a background with the organisations whose content they bring together, so there is close understanding. The aggregation model enables Europeana to collect huge quantities of data from thousands of providers, through only a handful of channels.
  • Les Miserables: Victor Hugo’s handwritten manuscripts: BnF, public domain Matisse ‘53 in the form of a double helix’ The Wellcome Library (CC-BY-NC-ND) ‘ söprűtánc ’ – Hungarian traditional dance Hungarian Academy of Sciences Institute for Musicolog y, public domain ‘ Neurologico reggae’ Music album DISMARC – EuropeanaConnect Paid Access ‘ Castle of Kavala’ 3D exploration of a Greek castle Cultural and Educational Technology Institute - Research Centre Athen CARARE CC-BY-NC-ND
  • Building a global community of organisations and individuals committed open up data and content held by Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museum Sharing best practices and providing documentation on the whys and hows of open data and content in cultural her Stimulating the re-use of open cultural data and content by building open source platforms and tools
  • From the Community / Communities: Make sure - the difference of 'data' and 'content' . Is content "data"? - Digital Humanitities.....etc. point to make - I want to build a new app or project with data or content from my local library what's the best way to approach them and encourage them to let me do it D
  • Openness with respect to cultural heritage has a multitude of benefits for teaching and research as well as for cultural heritage institutions seeking to become more participatory
  • Some large CH institutions have made money from selling the metadata about objects they hold CH institutions hold objects for which they don't hold rights, for which the rights status is unknown as well as those objects for which all rights have expired (public domain) Creative Commons have developed licensing tools now being widely adopted by CH institutions for their data - mention CC-0 Europeana release last year
  • Example used is: Een vrouw met een kind in een kelderkamer by Pieter de Hooch, Rijksmuseum, public domain
  • Antoine - will begin this section - talking about how aggregations, mapping to EDM and DPLA's MAP and open APIs enable
  • SL to lead Mention Rijksmuseum and Library of Israel experiments for tagging paintings with PyBossa;
  • Ask Audience: what is a business model?
  • How do we cater to different end user communities who have different needs?
  • How do we cater to different end user communities who have different needs?
  • Ask Audience: what is a business model? The archive sector aims to preserve our heritage and make it broadly accessible Digitization is a powerful tool to reach those goals and create added value. But how does this affect our business model?
  • Reach a new audience Create user participation In the new model things had drastically changed
  • Ask Audience: what is a business model?
  • Ask Audience: what is a business model?
  • Image use in Wikipedia articles March 2012: Walters images were used in a total of 27 Wikipedia articles in 12 languages. This was the month the image upload was completed. [1] December 2012: After continued distribution in projects via crowdsourcing, Walters images are now used in 1,357 articles in over 40 languages. [1] As of December 2012, over 2,130 image are used in Wikimedia projects. Do keep in mind that many images uploaded by the Walters are primary sources (books) or multiple images of one object. [2] Views of pages using Walters images [3] March 2012: Articles using Walters images (27 articles) were viewed 276,843 times in 12 languages. [1] December 2012: Articles using Walters images (1,357) were viewed 10,016,938 times in over 40 languages. [4] Traffic to the Walters website from Wikimedia and Wikipedia January 2012: Before the upload, Wikimedia and Wikipedia websites (all languages) direct about 2,000 visits to the Walters' website, annually. January 2013: After the upload, Wikimedia and Wikipedia websites (all languages) direct about 10,882 visits to the Walters' website, annually. This is an increase of about 544% in the amount of traffic from these sources.

The DPLA’s primary focus is on making available materials from the United States. Code – where possible make use of existing free and open source code; built on open standards Metadata – shareable; available under CC0 license to allow for unrestricted reuse; goal to operate as part of global linked data environment; resolves to digital objects Content – incorporate all types of content beginning with “green lighted” & public domain content that resolves to digital objects Tools & Services – provide tools and services for enhanced use of content and content creation Community – participatory platform – WE are the DPLA

    12. Two categories of rightsMetadata (descriptive object information) CCContent (digital objects on the site of the provider) Different options
    13. Rights Statements for content Open Not open – but clear Not open
    14. Infrastructure to enable
    15. APIs and interoperability• DPLA API - o Available under AGPLv3• Europeana API o• Europeana Linked Open data pilot o
    16. Data model and interoperability From dozens of metadata formats to one Europeana Data model Consolidated with partners who re-use it – DPLA! Licensing framework Metadata AND content Licensing campaign Give better rights data for more content! campaign
    18. Crowd CraftingOpen Enablers The Timeliner
    19. Open (business models)
    20. Value Proposition Activities Relationship Resources Stakeholders Partners Channels Costs Benefits‘The business model describes the logic of our organization to create and deliver value’
    21. Case 1Europeana
    22. We had aggregated millions of objects and made them available through one specific interfaceBut the portal setup didn’t cater to the needs of wildly differing customer segments... 2008-2012
    23. Who have their own workflows and preferences for accessing information 2008-2012
    24. The key to this was changing the licensing frameworkBut how does this affect the business model of our partner institutions?

    26. The project made 400 photos available on Flickr- The Commons
