As a paleontology curator and BHL-Europe coordinator, Henning contributed digital objects to the portal even before joining Europeana in 2012.

Our new Content Strategy will help our organisation and partners to identify what kind of content we need to expand, what content we need to restrain, and who takes ownership of the decision making process.
Aggregators are the key link between Europeana and cultural heritage institutions across Europe. We have brought together our extensive experience of holding training events to develop a Playbook that will support best practice in workshop delivery. This will contribute towards our ultimate goal of encouraging more CHIs across Europe to provide relevant, high quality and open data to Europeana.
National, domain and thematic aggregators, support Europeana in its mission to ‘transform the world with culture’. Their primary aim is to support cultural institutions and provide access to authentic, trustworthy and robust data and content that is accessible for use by the general public, education, research and the creative industries.
We want to build on Europe’s rich heritage and make it easier for people to use, whether for work, for learning or just for fun. We are therefore constantly adding new content and improving existing content to reach that goal.
This section is highlighting how the library domain professionals look at developing and applying transformation to their specific library format, MARC 21, how that translates into EDM and further beyond how it is presented in the Europeana Collections site.
By contributing your data to Europeana Collections, we can help you to reach a wider audience. Together, we can transform the world with culture and make our shared heritage more accessible to everyone.
The aim of this course is for you to understand why the Europeana Foundation developed the Europeana Data Model (EDM), how it works, how you can get a bunch of nice EDM records from a bunch of MARC21 records, and what’s best practice in creating EDM mappings.
