1 local content in a Europeana cloud Alternative methods of ingestion for small institutions (Stein) Runar Bergheim Asplan Viak Internet as LoCloud is funded by the European Commission's ICT Policy Support Programme

2 Overview of Presentation Characteristics of Europeana content providers Present ingestion methods for Europeana Alternative ingestion methods “out there” Experiments that may be conducted as part of LoCloud 7 slides 284 words characters 2 illustrations (A seemingly endless stream of words)

3 Characteristics of Europeana content providers Those who are «in» Professional cultural heritage institutions Capacity for investment in infrastructure & projects Technical skills beyond what may be expected Entities that fit into a hierarchy of aggregators Patient Those who are «out» Very small collections – Collections by individuals – (tens to hundreds of objects) Independent institutions with strained funding «Non-conforming» online content structure – 1 web page  1 object

4 Present Europeana ingestion process

5 Puts great demands on content providers – Partly mitigated by the excellent MINT-MORE tools Limited capacity at harvesting end – Partly mitigated by aggregator hierarchy Low frequency of updates – each iteration takes a long time – Partly mitigated by modified content/aggregation architecture of Europeana Cloud Weaknesses of present Europeana ingestion process

6 Alternative ingestion methods «out there»

7 Difficult to create complete ESE/EDM from crawling – But... the typical Europeana record is not really all that «complete» – Schema.org. Microformats and other embedded semantics may help Deep-content URLs hidden for crawlers – Simple «site-map» protocol may be applied Increases capacity for small content providers Decreases time-consumption of the content ingestion life-cycle Will serve more than one publishing channel Considerations for alternative ingestion methods

8 Content assessment – Assess quantity of «new» content that can be reached using alternative ingestion methods Technology experiments – HTML embedded semantics based on open standards – Creating a test-spider for auto-extraction of metadata from web pages – Transformation of data to ESE/EDM Design of processes – Embedding of spider into aggregator organizations business processes – Ingestion + Quality assurance Experiments that may be conducted as part of LoCloud

9 Thank you for the attention
