HOPE in Europeana: Raising Awareness on New Content
The workshop will showcase two of OSA’s EU supported Best Practices Network projects: the HOPE project, which brings together a partnership of European social history institutions aiming to improve access to the vast and growing amount of highly significant but scattered digital collections on social history, and the EAwareness project, in which libraries, archives, and museums, as well as digital developers work together to publicize the European Digital Library (Europeana) to a broad public and generate new content via user participation.
The English language interactive workshop welcomes the presence of institutions, companies, archivists, librarians, students, researchers interested in digital preservation and online access to European cultural heritage.
Guest presenters come from KARTA Center, Poland; History Meeting House, Poland; Petőfi Literary Museum, Hungary; Monguz Ltd., Hungary; Amsab-Institute for Social History, Belgium; International Institute for Social History, Holland; The Romanian Institute for Recent History, Romania; Institute for the Study of Totalitarianism, Romania; Friedrich Ebert Foundation, Germany; Open Society Archives, Hungary; Institute of Contemporary History, Czech Republic; Europeana Foundation.
