Europeana v2.0 WP 7 & EuropeanaTech

  1. Europeana v2.0 WP 7 & EuropeanaTech Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library(with input from Antoine Isaac, Valentine Charles, Maarten Brinkerink, Johan Oomen, Stefan Gradmann, Marlies Olensky, Juliane Stiller) Europeana Network Annual General Meeting Berlin, 26–27 November 2012
  2. Research & Development in Europeana Context R&D Agenda R&D Results Identify Marketing Ingestion Evaluate Analyse External Programme mR&D/expertise P Management ea rod lT uc ca t ni Te ch Implement am Te Conceptualise Specify Product Development Network R&D Results EDM
  3. Europeana R&D Agenda 2012Foster a network of specialists from GLAM and researchinstitutions, who can advice on technological topicswhen neededDevelop R&D agenda for Europeana: identify trends &gaps, who is working on them, how we can support themFeed R&D results from the scientific / open sourcecommunity into the development of EuropeanaImprove and incrementally update EDMInform IT-related networks (e.g. LOD or Digital Librariescommunities) on Europeana-related R&DDisseminate our partners’ technological advances

  15. EuropeanaTech Task Forces
  16. Focus: EuropeanaTech Task Forces Model refinements on EDM • Task force on Hierarchical Objects • Task force on EDM-FRBRoo Application Profile Task force on Persistent Identifiers @maxkaiser
  17. Task force on Hierarchical Objects: Motivation Important topic for Europeana Network Implementation of solutions delayed • Required functionalities not available in the flat ESE model EDM: new possibilities to represent such complex data Real need for examples showing best practices Task force launched in June 2012 at the Europeana Plenary Wiki: /wiki/Main/Taskforce+on+hierarchical+objects Final deliverable: January 2013 @maxkaiser
  18. Task Force Hierarchical Objects:Different domains representedChair: Valentine Charles, Europeana FoundationMembers: Allison Kupietzky, The Israel Museum Antoine Isaac, Europeana Foundation Dan Matei, CIMEC Donald Weber and Alessia Bardi, HOPE project Kerstin Arnold, Bundesarchiv, APEx project Maria Luisa Martinez Conde, Ministry of Culture Spain Michael Fingerhut, Stefanie Ruehle, Göttingen State and University Library Robina Clayphan, Europeana Foundation Rodolphe Bailly, Cité de la Musique Xavier Agenjo, Fundación Ignacio Larramendi @maxkaiser
  19. Main activities | 1 Identify different cases where hierarchies are involved Eight case studies collected from different domains: • Hierarchical description of objects from libraries • Hierarchical representation of event-related documents • Hierarchical objects in audiovisual archives • Hierarchical objects in the context of the Hope project • Hierarchies for archeological objects • Europeana 1914–1918 • The Montiano family archive • Israeli artist biographies Inventory of display solutions @maxkaiser
  20. Main activities | 2 Providing best practices for mapping to EDM @maxkaiser
  21. What happened in the meeting yesterday… Discussion of first draft of the final report Analysis of different case studies • Hierarchical representation of event-related documents • Hierarchical objects in audiovisual archives • Hierarchical description of objects from libraries • Hierarchies for archaeological objects Discussion of keys issues • Question of granularity: what to include in hierarchies? • Modelling of hierarchies in contextual resources? • How to sequence parts in hierarchies? • How to represent missing parts? Task force will run for two more months First draft version of report in December 2012 @maxkaiser
  22. Task Force EDM FRBRoo (EFAP TF) Intention: analyse how to map existing data formats into an EDM model extended by FRBRoo Kick-off July 16, 2012 Wiki: /wiki/Main/Task+Force+EDM+FRBRoo @maxkaiser
  23. EFAP Task Force: Goals Start from mapping provided by CIDOC Deliverable: • Combined model of properties and classes including sample data • Modeling principles and mapping rules Results will be of use for everyone who wants to model derivative relations in EDM @maxkaiser
  24. EFAP Task Force: MembersChairs: Martin Doerr and Stefan Gradmann Trond Aalberg  Steffen Hennicke Kerstin Arnold  Antoine Isaac Rodolphe Bailly  Patrick LeBoeuf Detlev Balzer  Maja Žumer Robina Clayphan  Kai Eckert Karen Coyle  Justyna Walkowska Gordon Dunsire  Vladimir Alexiev Michael Fingerhut  Marlies Olensky @maxkaiser
  25. EFAP Task Force: Current status 3 virtual meetings: documented in the Wiki Selection of mapping examples • Don Quixote • Hamlet • Musical example • Example from a Swiss Poster collection Smaller groups work on the examples “offline” Last virtual meeting (Nov 15): share and discuss first mapping exercises – available on the Wiki: /wiki/Main/Prep+Call+Nov+15 @maxkaiser
  26. Status after meeting yesterday Decisions: • Distinguish modelling for integration, querying & representation • Use FRBR distinction “expression” vs. “work” only if needed • Produce clear rules for use of this distinction Use FRBRoo specialisations to optimise mappings where needed • Identify minimal set of FRBRoo extensions which are required to represent the level of detail found in the data Derive mapping rules from these example mappings • until Christmas 2012 • input for virtual meeting on January 9, 2013 Finish by February (deliverable) @maxkaiser
  27. Persistent Identifiers Task Force Goal: investigate if Europeana should play a role in the implementation of PIDs for its Data Providers beyond promoting their use Examining what that role could be Chair: Jan Molendijk (Europeana Foundation) 12 Task Force Members Physical meeting in June at the Europeana Plenary Process so far: • Question paper sent out • Discussions followed on list • Reference to current practices returned (e.g. HOPE) @maxkaiser
  28. PI Task Force: Next Steps Jan Molendijk will combine input into draft position paper Will be sent to list(s) for comments, then finalized by End January 2013 @maxkaiser
  29. EuropeanaTech and the three main Europeana Priorities for 20131. Europeana is an Ecosystem2. Europeana is a Core Service Platform3. The Value of Opening Up @maxkaiser
  30. 1. Europeana is an Ecosystem Shared vision: improve access to our shared cultural heritage Europeana Network as a shared, distributed eco-system: more than the sum of its parts EuropeanaTech Community: essential component of the ecosystem Contributions by EuropeanaTech Network in 2013: • Contribute to Commons thinking • Improve sense of mutuality between Europeana Foundation and Network – Example: EuropeanaTech Task Forces • Improve Knowledge Sharing – Example: FLOSS Inventory, Europeana Professional @maxkaiser
  31. 2. Europeana is a Core Service Platform Europeana is a catalyst for innovation for the Cultural Heritage Sector & the Creative Industries Focus on provision of tools & infrastructure for others to build services Contributions by EuropeanaTech Network in 2013: • Contribute to Open Culture Lab / Living Labs network ( Europeana Creative) • Connect to conferences / events in tech sector • Contribute to interoperability: EDM and LOD work @maxkaiser
  32. 3. The Value of Opening Up How can we best demonstrate the value of opening up? Contributions by EuropeanaTech Network in 2013 • Contributions to LOD • Contribute to applications for UGC • Work on user interaction models @maxkaiser
  33. How can you contribute?
  34. How to contribute? Several levels: organization, advice, code, data… Mailing list, Twitter… React to our deliverables Contribute prototypes & demos in ThoughtLab / Open Culture Lab Contribute documented EDM metadata and mappings for next steps of EDM Participate in our upcoming meetings! How about a joint technical meeting in 2013? @maxkaiser
  35. Thank you! Max Kaiser, Austrian National Library
