Aggregator that contributes Bulgarian cultural heritage content to Europeana

Mission Statement

http://bulgariana.eu is an upcoming Bulgarian aggregator to Europeana that will include:

  • A public website for sharing information
  • A wiki ([Confluence|www.atlassian.com/Confluence]) for discussion, technical materials, coordination and collaboration
  • A digital repository (DSpace) for storing and presenting digitized cultural heritage
  • Conversion/ingestion tools for converting objects to the required Europeana formats (ESE and in the future EDM)
  • An [OAI-PMH|www.openarchives.org/pmh] endpoint for serving content to Europeana
  • Semantic search using OWLIM (in the future)

The mission of the Bulgariana initiative includes the following goals:

  • improve communication between Bulgarian organizations working in the cultural heritage domain
  • improve technical and organizational collaboration
  • share information about funding possibilities and calls
  • work together on proposals and projects
  • concentrate and focus the efforts of the Bulgarian cultural heritage community
  • provide a default platform for IT research related to cultural heritage, and an opportunity for small museums and other institutions to host their collections

Why English?

If this is about Bulgarian heritage, why these pages are in English?
The reason is that in this way we hope to attract external partners more easily
