1 Searching and browsing film archives – The European Film Gateway approach Cultural Heritage 2009 Cairo, Egypt 6-8 December 2009 Pasquale Savino – ISTI-CNR Franca Debole – ISTI-CNR Georg Eckes - DIF

2 growing number of digitisation projects and repositories of digital collections need for a registry of collections, items and film-specific authority files on a trans-institutional, trans-national level Lack of common standards for database & record structures suitable for the needs of film archives need for common interoperability standards flickr, youTube etc. influence user expectations, digital libraries initiatives are on their way challenge for film archives to go along lack of knowledge and best practices when it comes to dealing with IPR issues in the context of web-based access need to join experiences Initial Situation: Why a European Film Gateway?

3 Goals and Objectives: What is EFG supposed to achieve? build a digital showcase for collections of Europes film archives and cinematheques Moving images: Films and film clips, trailers etc. Images: Posters, images, stills, drawings etc. Text material: Reviews, correspondance, censoship documents etc. Sound material: Interviews etc. make collections accessible through a common access point create a registry of digital objects and filmographic authority records link Europes film archives and cinematheques with Europeana and operate as an Aggregator for Europeana make more than photographs, posters, texts, audio documents, films and film clips covering more than 100 years of film history accessible by 2011

4 Objectives Defining a metadata schema which is able to describe the complexity of EFG data structures, relationships, and content and that can support search and browsing capabilities Joining archives and filmographies and support export of complex metadata structures (OAI-PMH) Cleaning and consolidating data from heterogeneous sources Enriching content (tagging archival resources and filmographic editing) Clearing rights where necessary

6 Goals and Objectives: What is EFG supposed to achieve?

7 Definition of a common interoperability schema Approach –The schema was designed taking into account the specific application scenario –Looking at existing models, in order to take into account previous experiences and to simplify the schema mapping –The model is based on the User needs defined in EFG –Maintain a compatibility with ESE in order to simplify the ingestion process into Europeana

8 The EFG Metadata Schema

9 An AV Creation Corresponds to a Cinematographic work as defined in EN Main elements: Identifier Title Record Source Identifying Title Country of Reference Production Year Keywords Description Note UserTag ViewFilmography

10 The EFG Metadata Schema An AV Manifestation is the physical embodiment of an audio visual creation. For example, it may contain the different national versions, different productions of the same AV Creation. Main elements: Identifier Title Record Source Language Dimension Duration Coverage Format Rights holder Provenance Thumbnail Note

11 The EFG Metadata Schema An Item contains a reference to the external resource. For a single AV Manifestation we may have several Items stored in different archives. Main elements: Identifier IsShownBy IsShownAt Format Provider URI Country Note
