Cultural Heritage: “Getting the Right Content to the Right User at the Right Time,” Europeana Releases Content Strategy

From Europeana Pro:

2017-03-16_20-59-05Europeana’s platform can only be as good as the content it provides access to. For that reason, our new Content Strategy published today will help our organisation and partners to identify what kind of content we need to expand, what content we need to limit, and who takes ownership of the decision making process. This Content Strategy was designed by a team consisting of key Europeana Foundation staff and aggregators representing the domains (museums, libraries, archives, audiovisual archives), and will support us in “getting the right content to the right user at the right time through strategic planning of content creation, delivery, and governance” (Content Strategy Alliance Charter – Content Strategy Definition).


The operational aspects of the Content Strategy and the data requirements are specified in a new version of the Europeana Publishing Guide. This new version also includes an update of the minimum requirements for digital objects previously published in the Annex of the Europeana Publishing Framework. As a consequence, the Publishing Framework itself was updated to exclude digital object requirements.
