Enriching Europeana Newspapers aims to expose the full text aggregated as part of the Europeana Newspapers project. It contains over 11 million pages of full text of historic newspapers (mainly but not all 19th century), drawn from national and research libraries across Europe. A portal is already in place. This pilot aims to expose and improve the text for more data driven usage (ie large scale data analysis of the whole corpus).
For the benefit of cultural organisations the National Library of Scotland, working with Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC) and with the support of the National Galleries of Scotland and the Digital Preservation Coalition will explore the potential of EUDAT cloud-like services to preserve European digital cultural heritage.
The National Library of Scotland and the National Galleries of Scotland are two of the largest custodians of physical and digital cultural heritage in Scotland covering art, literature, the written and spoken word, music, moving image, the web and digital archives. Each has strong digital expertise and we work together to improve the storage of digital culture to ensure that we preserve access to it.
