2 2 For the users it is not important whether the sources of knowledge and experience are kept by archives, libraries or museums, but to get access to the sources they want, and to be able to use these sources across types of sources and sectors of institutions.

7 7 EDLocal Best Practice Network Best Practice Network Three years (starts 1 June) Three years (starts 1 June) Improve interoperability of digital content held by regional and local museums, libraries and archives Improve interoperability of digital content held by regional and local museums, libraries and archives Make over 20 million items available initially Make over 20 million items available initially prove the value of local/regionally sourced content prove the value of local/regionally sourced content Europe wide network of regional repositories/ aggregations Europe wide network of regional repositories/ aggregations Integrated Europeana prototype service including EDLocal content Integrated Europeana prototype service including EDLocal content

8 8 Why should we do this? Make local content infrastructure available for harvesting and indexing by Europeana service Make local content infrastructure available for harvesting and indexing by Europeana service Make branded content available to other service providers Make branded content available to other service providers tourism tourism education education family history family history humanities research humanities research publishing/media industries publishing/media industries through other search engines and services on the web through other search engines and services on the web

22 22 Establishing local repositories EDLnet tools and standards Assess available technologies Select preferred product Choose repository technology Identify hardware needs Acquire and configure hardware Establish hardware platform Install and configure software Perform production testing Establish software platform Metadata export from existing system Migrate content

23 23 Content migration process steps Content & Content Collections Metadata extraction Local classification shemas Metadata harmonization & cross mapping Controlled vocabularies Multi-linguality Metadata enrichment IPR clearance Assign Unique IDs Populate repository Authentication mechanisms Europeana

24 24 Challenges of different types of contentC Local content Standards compliant online content Online content from legacy systems Content which only exists as metadata Born digital content

25 25 Metadata enrichment Object data Persons and roles metadata Topical metadata Geography and coverage metadata Temporal metadata Mainly manually entered but also process text to look for person names Similar technology as is applied by search engines, extracting keywords and assigning relevance according to frequency Coverage is specified in any number of ways such as geographical names, administrative entities and coordinates. Need geo-metadata Difficult to get disambiguous temporal metadata but possible

26 26 How to persuade local institutions to contribute? Pragmatic approcah Must take into account existing infrastructure and systems Wider picture Improved discoverability and accessibility to content Regional services Need to establish basis for services on regional level Granularity Must be able to link content to common ontology European services Need a killer application on trans national level Legacy systems A multitude of database and storage technologies exist without any apparent standardisation Local repository Local services are built on existing systems and the local repository doesnt immediately add value to existing system Regional repository Regional repositories might form the basis for services useful to local institutions but do not currently exist EDL repository Once information arrives in EDL repository metadata granularity will have increased because of harmonization EDL applications EDL applications are currently focussed on 3rd party end-users and does not immediately add value to local institutions
