Júlia Katona: Europeana – an integration alternative for Hungarian collections

Europeana, whose mission is to make European cultural heritage known and accessible as much as possible, has gone through a remarkable transformation in the past years.

The biggest European aggregation portal has moved from “quantitative” content service towards “qualitative” online publication where the creative re-use of digital content has priority and the valorization of the segments of cultural heritage runs on a number of strands. How does this work? What kind of tools are used? How can Hungarian public collections latch on to the publication process which is already in the second phasis? The presentation will also summarize the speaker’s narrow first year as a counsellor in Europeana Members Council.
