During this course you will learn how to make your content and metadata available to Europeana. A specific focus is being put on small and medium sized institutions, whose digital collections are still under-represented in Europeana. A cloud-based technology infrastructure enables the aggregation of local content and a number of micro-services helps to reduce technical, semantic and skills barriers, and to render the content more discoverable and interoperable.
During this course you will learn how to organize and perform digitisation activities in small memory institution e.g. public library or local museum.
This course shows how to digitise cultural heritage objects, how to prepare them for on-line presentation and how to describe them with metadata. Besides of necessary theoretical background, the course includes also practical instructions which will enable small institutions to create high quality digital content and make it available to services like Europeana.
