Europeana v1.0

Objective

Europeana v1.0 was the successor network to the EuropeanaNet thematic network which created the Europeana prototype and the Europeana Foundation. Following the launch of the user designed and driven prototype of Europeana, the Europeana Foundation wished to use Europeana v1.0 to develop an operational service and solve key operational issues related to the implementation and functioning of Europeana.

The intention was to develop Europeana into an operational service through the Europeana v1.0 project which had as main objectives

  • putting into practice the decisions on how to attract and maintain content into the service
  • building the back end systems needed to manage the delivery and access of this content
  • managing the channels enabling other environments to use the content made interoperable by Europeana, via web services or API's (application programming interface)
  • deploy the most usable levels of multilingual search and retrieval
  • disseminate the service to end users and provide tools to involve them actively
