Digital Cultural Content: Europeana Announces Official Release of E-Space Portal
From the DigitalMeetsCulture Blog:
The Europeana Space project is proud to announce the official release of a new platform, which provides services for content search, aggregation, interoperability, visualisation, publication and reuse.
E-Space is a Best Practice Network focused on the creative reuse of digital cultural heritage. It provides an environment for experimenting with the development of applications and services using digital cultural content.
[Note: The E-Space portal includes material from DPLA, Internet Archive, and other cultural heritage collections].
The E-Space Portal is a unique and efficient access point to billions of digital objects and resources from a number of major repositories, integrating the search results into common views, simplifying the search and offering users a set of tools to manage and share digital cultural heritage items. The tools of the E-Space Portal can also be used to upload personal datasets, clean, enrich and aggregate them, as well as to enhance the visibility and reach of digital collections with virtual exhibitions and engaging stories.
The E-Space Portal is a great starting point for users to discover cultural heritage resources that reside in distributed repositories. They can combine different sources with their own material, allowing them to offer new interesting narratives for the appreciation and communication of culture.
