EuropeanaLocal: Making local and regional content accessible through the European Digital Library

EDLocal is a proposal to establish over 3 years a Best Practice Network to improve the interoperability of the digital content held by regional and local institutions and make it accessible through the European Digital Library (EDL) and to other services. There is a pressing need to involve Europe"s network of local and regional museums and archives, as well as libraries, more extensively in making the enormous amount of digital content that they hold available through the EDL. Such involvement will bring together a rich diversity of content of all types, cultures and languages making it possible to establish integrated services with great richness and adding value for communities and individual users. EDLocal will work with the EDL Foundation to establish efficient and sustainable processes through which local and regional institutions can easily make their contents available to the EDL during and after the project, adopting and promoting the use of its infrastructures, tools and standards, as specifications emerge, especially OAI-PMH repositories and the EDL Metadata Application Profiles initially but moving forward to semantic web technologies later. EDLocal builds on existing multiplier networks of local institutions to bring together a consortium that represents 27 countries states with broad ranging experience of the cultural sector, digital libraries, standards and aggregation services. EDLocal will make over 20 million items available to the EDL. The expected results include the establishment of a network of regional repositories that are highly interoperable with the EDL, an integrated EDL-EDLocal prototype service and the development of thematic areas for EDL services which integrate content from both the national and the local/regional level.
