Europeana: EuropeanaConnect Multimedia Annotation Service

This is a technology or research stand, located in Zone R6 - Content and Knowledge. Stand number: R6-16

EuropeanaConnect is the best practice network in Europeana, the European digital library.

Europeana is a cultural heritage web portal hosting a multilingual collection of millions of digitised items. It is currently investigating how to integrate the knowledge of end-users with existing processes for the preservation and maintenance of digital assets. Annotations or adding notes such as content summaries in the form of metadata are the well-understood solution to this challenge. This exhibit is organised by the EuropeanaConnect project which delivers core components of Europeana. The project enables annotations on digital multimedia items, such as images, audio, video, websites and maps. The stand will showcase the multimedia annotation tools being developed.
