Improving data quality in Europeana: The Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg case study

Improving data quality in Europeana: The Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg case study

Created: 30 June 2017

Since the foundation of various libraries close to the university in the 14th and 15th centuries, the Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg has housed many important collections. The datasets that have been delivered to Europeana hold over 25,000 records including treasures such as manuscripts, manuscript fragments, charters, and early modern and modern printed books and magazines.

Linked Data, looking ahead

Linked Data, looking ahead

Created: 10 May 2017

Europeana has progressively adopted the principles of Linked Data for representing, aggregating, and enriching the metadata it collects from the Cultural Heritage institutions of Europe. Its foundation is the Europeana Data Model (EDM) which enables the representation of links between cultural heritage objects and the entities surrounding them (people, places, concepts, timespans).
