Improving Europeana

ASSETS is about finding content in Europeana, the European Digital Library. Europeana provides online access to more than 10 million digital objects such as books, paintings, photographs, videos and audios from – otherwise difficult to reach – museums and archives across Europe. Content in Europeana comes from over 2,000 different institutions.

In order to enhance the usability of Europeana ASSETS developed a range of supporting software services focusing on multimedia search, browsing and interfaces. The project also contributed new multimedia content for Europeana from over 9 European content providers.

Deutsche Welle was a content partner and contributed audio and video content items with adapted, extended and enriched metadata.

The project ran from Apr 2010 – Mar 2012

Cross library searches

PAPYRUS was a digital library search project. The setup of digital libraries including digitizing and classification of content has already consumed significant effort in the past years. Nonetheless there were no activities undertaken to make cross library searches available. For historians – for instance – it was not easy to conduct successful searches in news archives.

The goal of Papyrus was to close the gap of cross-discipline access to digital content archives. The project developed a digital library machine that takes in queries in the context of a specific discipline, looks for content in a domain alien to that discipline and returns the results presented in a way useful and comprehensive to the user.

Deutsche Welle was a user partner and contributed to news use case, validation and dissemination.

The project ran from Mar 2008 – Oct 2010

Aggregate, analyse and filter information

MESH was about news syndication and filtering. In a globalized world we are confronted with an overabundance of news information. But how easy is it for anyone to navigate in this flood of information? Is it possible to obtain an objective view of controversial events, at national or international level?

MESH developed methods to analyse and organise news in a semantic way. This was to allow users to have a complete overview of all similar and conflicting views, being also able to filter information according to personal preferences and interests.

Deutsche Welle was a user partner and contributed to the news use case, validation and dissemination. In addition, Deutsche Welle developed a small CMS (Content Management System) called “Full Story”, which allowed for the integration of individual components developed by MESH project partners. Having been further modified to meed organisational needs, Full Story is still in use at DW.

The project ran from Mar 2006 – Feb 2009
