The Collections Trust has secured major European Commission investment in Collections online projects worth a total of €8m. The projects are:
EUROPEANA INSIDE is a research and development project in partnership with 10 leading Collections Management Software providers, all of whom are members of the Collections Trust’s ‘SPECTRUM Partner’ Scheme. The project will develop open-source tools, enabling cultural organisations to manage the sharing and re-use of their Collections online. Further information is available at http://www.europeanainside.eu
PARTAGE PLUS is a 24-month project worth €3m to digitise Art Nouveau objects, artworks, posters, and buildings to create around 75,000 items, including 2,000 3D models, of content for access through Europeana, the central channel for European culture online at http://www.europeana.eu.
ENUMERATE is a networking project which aims to provide up-to-date and comprehensive intelligence about the costs, methods and impact of digitising collections in museums, archives and libraries. Further information is available from http://www.enumerate.eu.
LINKED HERITAGE is a major initiative to help cultural organisations open up their collections as Linked Open Data, ensuring that it can be re-used to support new applications, innovation and creativity across Europe.
