DRI and the Europeana Common Culture Project: Sharing Irish Digital Data in a European Context
11:00-12:30 GMT | 12:00-13:30 CET

Europeana is a digital platform that allows European institutions to reach a wider audience by sharing their social and cultural heritage online. The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) has been working with Europeana since Jan 2019 as the Irish partner in Europeana’s Common Culture Project, which aims to improve the quality of up to four million records that have been provided by national aggregators to the Europeana platform.

This webinar will mark the end of the Common Culture Project, it will reflect on DRI’s development of an aggregation service through the project, and highlight the achievements of the project. It will also explore:

- DRI’s plans to continue to support Irish memory institutions and cultural heritage institutions as a national aggregator for Ireland in the future.
- A talk on Europeana and Digitisation delivered by Tadhg O'Shea from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
- The development of a pilot 3D viewer for the DRI repository and Europeana as part of the project and the benefits to organisations of preserving and sharing 3D data with the support of DRI.
- A case study on the benefits of aggregating to Europeana delivered by Padraic Stack, Senior Librarian, Dublin City Libraries and Archives.

Join us to learn how DRI can support cultural organisations in sharing Irish digital cultural data in a European context so that it can be used and reused for enjoyment, research, and education.
