    Europeana: the timetable

  • Funded by the Commissions digital libraries initiative under the eContentplus call 2-year thematic partnership network100 partners representing: all EU Member States related Commission-funded projects the 4 cultural heritage domains: audio-visual collections archives museums libraries

    The Europeana network

  • www.europeana.eu

  • The commission has a vision for EuropeanaIt brings together all types of materials: paintings, books, film, sound, newspapers, photographs from all types of cultural heritage institutions, from across Europe.

    This keys in with what users want: not interested in what kind of institution holds material, nor what country it resides in.They want integrated access, and they expect all media can be delivered to their workspace.Web 2 services increasingly bring them text, images, video, music. you tube, myspace, facebook

    This vision clearly has the potential to create enormous impact

    Europeana will be a portal, a multilingual interface to a central index of Europes digitised cultural heritageResults will point directly to the digitised object the film, the book not to catalogues or finding aidsTesting the data harvesting and bringing in content from different sectors, different countries, Launch of the PUBLIC prototype will take place during a meeting of the Council of Ministers on 20th NovemberPrototype will not be the full service version, but a large-scale proof of concept with a minimum of 2 million objectsDevelopments will continue after the prototype launch, to scale the prototype up to handle a minimum of 6 million objects by 2010

    Europeana is being developed by a commission funded thematic network as part of e-contentplus

    All organisations with digitised collections, or with an interest in sharing knowledge and expertise, are welcome to join the network
