JUDAICA Europeana: Jewish Urban Digital European Integrated Cultural Archive

Judaica Europeana

JUDAICA Europeana is anchored in a network of leading European institutions with substantial content holdings documenting the Jewish contribution to the development of European cities. Jews occupied a central role in the evolution of the modern city; their presence and stake in urban culture has been so high as to render them the symbolic equivalent of the city itself. The objectives of JUDAICA Europeana are to encourage holders of Jewish content to identify elements of their collections that document the role, creativity and self-expression of Jews in European Cities, coordinate standards across the participating institutions and holders of such thematic content in view of their harmonization to the metadata and interoperability requirements of Europeana and to support the digitisation of such content and its aggregation into a coherent virtual thematic collection.

The deployment of a set of management tools will enable the underlying community of practice to adapt and apply controlled vocabularies, thesauri and ontologies for the indexing, retrieval and re-use of the aggregated content in the area of interest. JUDAICA will deliver recommendations and guidelines focusing on the digitisation workflow, multilingual access, IPR issues and business models that will support the participant institutions in making their content available and integrate it into Europeana.
