”Europeana – exploring 57,624,717 artworks, artefacts, books, films and music from European museums, galleries, libraries and archives”
”Europeana builds a platform for accessing a wide variety of digitized heritage across Europe. This presentation will explain some key points on how Europeana works, with a strong focus on (meta)data issues. This session will for example discuss how Europeana and its Network of data partners try to address matters of data quality in a multilingual context, what this requires both from a data engineering perspective and a community one, and how this connect with the FAIR principles. Europeana Research, the initiative to promote the use of digital heritage in academic research, will also be introduced.”
