In the framework of a capacity building effort to support digital transformation of the cultural heritage sector, that is promoted within the EU-funded Europeana DSI4 project, a case study was developed by Photoconsortium about the benefits and impact that Cultural Heritage Institutions can gain from publishing high-quality, open access heritage collections in Europeana, the European digital gateway to cultural heritage.
The case study analyses the stories, experiences and lessons learnt by the municipal audiovisual archive of the city of Girona, managed by CRDI, the Centre for Image Research and Diffusion. Currently, CRDI’s collections available in Europeana amount to ca. 150.000 top quality photographic and audiovisual records, complying to the highest quality levels of the Europeana Publishing Framework and available for reuse.
Well begun is half done: sharing high quality collections from the archives managed by CRDI, the Centre for Image Research and Diffusion in Girona
