Europeana Wokshops (by invitation only)

Briefing Workshop: Implementing Europeana in Public Libraries & Community Collection Days 

The Briefing Workshop Consists of two Topics:

The first Part of the Briefing Workshop will discuss the opportunities for Public Libraries to interact with Europeana and will Introduce Tools and Services which will be made available for implementation and testing by the Public Libraries Network through Europeana Awareness during the next 1-2 Years. It will also provide an opportunity for Europeana to develop its understanding of future needs of Public Libraries which it can help to meet.

The second part of the Briefing Workshop will discuss how Public Libraries can act as Community Collection Points to promote contributions to Europeana and engage with the general public. It will provide information and guidelines on the participation in topic-based campaigns to gather memorabilia and stories, focusing on the addition of both contribution and contextual data by end-users, but also the organisation of Community Collection Events, with a focus on public uploading of material via the internet and how to raise public Awareness and draw media interest for these content gathering campaigns.
