Linked Heritage is a 30 month EU project, started on 1st April 2011.

The main goals are to contribute large quantities of new content to Europeana, from both the public and private sectors; to demonstrate enhancement of quality of content, in terms of metadata richness, re-use potential and uniqueness; to demonstrate enable improved search, retrieval and use of Europeana content.

The consortium includes representatives of all the key stakeholder groups from 20 EU countries, together
with Israel and Russia. These include ministries and responsible government agencies, content providers and
aggregators, leading research centres, publishers and SMEs.

This publication, edited by Linked Heritage WP3 and ATHENA WP4 “Terminology and multilingualism”, aims in priority at people working in European museums, experts or non-experts in Information Engineering and/or Linguistics, who have an interest on terminology and multilingualism. It proposes recommendations helping you to manage your terminology, to make it compliant and optimized for improving multilinguality on Europeana and to make it as a part of the Semantic Web following. The more you respect them, the more you improve the future retrievability of your digital collections online.
