Europeana provides online discovery to an astonishing 50 million digital cultural heritage items, including photos, texts, artworks, videos and sounds. Thanks to a Europeana Sounds project (www.europeanasounds.eu) the number of audio items will soon exceed one million and will be enhanced by interlinking across different media such as music scores and recorded music performances. Anyone who curates an online collection of digital audio assets will benefit from this workshop (and your collection does not have to hold European content), where you will:

(a) learn how Europeana developed a uniform data model for audio metadata to ensure interoperability between catalogues imported from many different organisations;
(b) see how to add licence and genre labels to ensure your audio archival assets are found and used correctly;
(c) using specially designed software, discover how datasets can be efficiently translated from your repository to Europeana’s.

Europeana raises the potential for new discoveries among digitised items currently hidden in dispersed collections; and allows user interaction via tagging and commenting. Fundamental to all this is providing good quality metadata in the correct format, using common vocabularies. This workshop covers the why and how of aggregating metadata, data cleaning and data transformation and the process of submitting your metadata to Europeana.
