In just under a decade, Europeana the digital gateway to Europe's cultural heritage has been leading the charge to improve and guarantee open access to high quality cultural heritage for all. Along the way Europeana has had to handle many challenges including poor or non-existent metadata, multilingual access with over 30 languages present, and the transformation from a portal to platform with a keen eye on new audiences. This talk given by EuropeanaTech Community Manager Gregory Markus will present the challenges that Europeana faces and the tireless efforts of EuropeanaTech and the Tech community to ensure universal open access to Europe's digital cultural heritage.
