EU-INSIDE: EUROPEANA INSIDE

The primary objective of the EUROPEANA INSIDE Best Practice Network is to support the Digital Agenda for Europe by achieving a lasting transformation in the quantity, scope and usability of the content available to Europeana from European cultural institutions. Within this overall ambition, the main objectives of EUROPEANA INSIDE are: - To open up a significant critical-mass of new digital cultural content from European cultural institutions for delivery through Europeana, - To simplify significantly the process of contributing content to Europeana for cultural institutions and aggregators of all scales and types throughout Europe, - To help cultural institutions and aggregators overcome barriers to participation by part-automating the workflow by which content is made available to Europeana, and creating tools for the management of permissions and licensing, - To build on the framework of standards and protocols established under previous Europeana projects by ensuring that current and future generations of Collections and Digital Asset Management Software are ‘Europeana-ready’. - To support metadata enrichment in Content Provider systems (and thereby deliver value to participating organisations and their users) by creating a channel for enhanced content to flow back from Europeana as the central domain aggregator and point of access to local systems. This Best Practive Network will lead to a specific increase in content to Europeana of 960,000 records from 15 cultural heritage institutions and 5 aggregators. It will also open up the potential for up to 7000 cultural institutions (the installed user-base of the Collections Management Systems represented in EUROPEANA INSIDE) to share an estimated 30m records with Europeana and its users.
