Budget €150,000

Description LoCloud (Local content in a Europeana cloud) aims to build on the achievements of CARARE in establishing a repository-based aggregator for Archaeological and Architectural heritage and of Europeana Local in its work with local institutions and their regional and national aggregators, which resulted in the contribution to date of well over 5 million items to Europeana. The main goals of LoCloud are: - to continue to ease the task of enabling heritage organisations in making their contents accessible via Europeana, by using cloud technologies - to facilitate aggregation of digital content from small and medium cultural institutions, to be made available to Europeana; - to enable smaller institutions such as house-museums to contribute their content to Europeana; - to explore the potential of cloud computing for aggregation, enrichment and re-use, with a special focus on geographic location.
