About the Event
In this webinar we will introduce Europeana Collections and its work with cultural institutions.
Europeana Collections offers online access to digital collections from over 3,700 galleries, libraries, museums and archives. The transfer of metadata from these institutions is done through a number of regional, national, domain and thematic aggregators. To have their collections published online, we have developed a data model, Europeana Data Model, that brings together specifications of other metadata formats, adds contextual information to the records and contributes to their publication as linked open data.
This session will cover briefly our recommendations for metadata quality, the possibilities of enhancement of certain fields and the various data re-use opportunities.
Libraries Data Specialist
Adina joined The European Library’s operations team in 2014 and she worked with libraries across Europe in different data aggregation projects. Currently, she’s bringing this experience in Europeana’s Data Partner Services team and continues to work with libraries interested to share their digital collections with the world. She studied Library and Information Management at the University of Bucharest and in 2012 she obtained an International Master’s Degree in Digital Library Learning (http://dill.hioa.no/).
Adina will be joined by Jane Daniels, Bibliographic Librarian, Cardiff Metropolitan University for introductions and Q&A.
The expected outcome of this webinar is for participants to learn about Europeana Collections and its approach on publishing digital collections online.

Feedback from previous webinars.
I always recommend UKSG webinars to HE and FE library and learning resources staff who want to stay up to date with developments in e-resources. The facilitation and organisation are first rate. Thankyou!
I haven't used a UKSG webinar before but found it very helpful for my work and will look out for them in future.
These webinars are an excellent way of getting easy access to experts in their fields.The information learnt can then be fed back at institution level and be used to improve not only the professional knowledge of the individual(s) taking part in the webinar but their institution as well.
