  2. AthenaPlus is a CIP best practice network started in March

    2013 and ending in August 2015. The consortium is composed by 40 partners from 21 Member States countries. ICCU is the coordinator. The principal objectives of the AthenaPlus project are to: Contribute more than 3.6 millions metadata records to Europeana, from both the public and private sectors, focusing mainly on museums content, with key cultural stakeholders (ministries and responsible government agencies, libraries, archives, leading research centres, SMEs); Improve search, retrieval and re-use of Europeana’s content, bettering multilingual terminology management, SKOS export and publication tool/API for Content Providers; Experiment with enriched metadata their re-use adapted for users with different needs (tourists, schools, scholars) by means of tools that support the development of virtual exhibitions, tourist and didactic applications, to be integrated into Europeana repositories and the repositories of national aggregators or individual Content Providers. AthenaPlus
  3. 3 work packages lead specific activities on digital storytelling 

    Creative applications for the re-use of cultural resources (WP5): analyse, define, configure and develop the software components necessary to enrich metadata for a creative use of the content collected by the AthenaPlus project. Led by META with support of PACKED  Pilots for testing the creative use of cultural contents (WP6): evaluate and test the tools and solutions designed and developed by WP5. Led by i2Cat supported by ICIMSS  Awareness and dissemination (WP7): make European museums and other cultural institutions aware of the benefits of making available their digital contents through Europeana, identify new best practices, and disseminate the results achieved to a broad audience. led by SPK and MICHAEL AthenaPlus
  4. • One of the main goals of public and private

    cultural institutions (GLAMs) is the promotion and dissemination of knowledge. • They accomplish their mission thanks to knowledge dissemination tools that include, among others, temporary and permanent exhibitions and performances that follow codified models, whose goal is to expose citizens to the national and international cultural and artistic heritage. 4 Exhibitions
  5. The meeting between the languages and methods of traditional cultural

    promotion (non-virtual exhibitions) and the promotion and dissemination of knowledge through web-based methods (online virtual exhibitions) have made it necessary in Italy to draft shared guidelines and recommendations that encourage the use of the web and maximize its potential. 5 Guidelines
  6. realizzazione Guidelines

  7. These guidelines, edited by MiBAC, aims: • to illustrate the

    state of the art on online virtual exhibitions, both on the basis of the actual experience accrued by various Italian institutes and the observation and analysis of international products • to clarify some concepts that in literature are not yet fully codified, and give some recommendations and a tool kit to institutions who want to realise projects. 7 Guidelines
  8. This MiBAC initiative has been promoted by Istituto centrale per

    il catalogo unico delle biblioteche italiane (ICCU) • manages the online catalogue of the Italian libraries and the interlibrary loan and document delivery National services • develops standards guidelines for the cataloguing and digitization. Istituto centrale per gli archivi (ICAR) - • develops plans and programs for the archival description and the development and interoperability among information systems • promotes the knowledge and application of descriptive standards and technology. Osservatorio tecnologico per i beni e le attività culturali (OTEBAC/ICCU) • provides advisory services, monitoring, and training , supporting cultural institutions in the creation and maintenance of quality digital cultural applications 8 Guidelines
  9. An online virtual/digital exhibition is a hypermedia collection accessible via

    the web, and made up of digital items which are: • linked together by a common threat, an inter-disciplinary topic, a concept, an idea, an anniversary, a special event, or a physical person • displayed in 2D or 3D • occasionally memorised in distributed networks • made accessible through the potential provided by modern technology, thanks to a system architecture designed to provide user-centred, absorbing experiences • dynamic products that can offer services and be updated periodically. It can be generated by a real event or born digital. 9 Digital exhibition
  10. • A collection of digital items, in and of itself,

    does not constitute a material or virtual exhibition. It is only when the items are carefully selected to illustrate a topic, and are tied together forming a narrative or a logical itinerary, that they constitute an exhibition. • Online virtual/digital exhibitions, independently of degree of sophistication of the technology used, can and must be put together in such a way that they can provide alternative experiences to the real event, which can involve the user in a process of discovery, knowledge acquisition, and learning. 10 Digital exhibition

  12. The idea was to create a tool by means of

    which cultural institutions will be able to highlight masterpieces of their collections, as well as less known or “not visible” works of art.

  29. Started in 2011 by an international Working Group with Partners

    from Germany, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Poland and Sweden, which worked closely together within several European projects and has been integrated into the project LinkedHeritage. From March 2013 it has been taken over into the project AthenaPlus. The involvement of the Working Group Partners includes museum related research & documentation activities and digital library activities. The WG explores current practices, searches through recent bibliography and identifies key questions in order to develop a simple set of effective guidelines for the use of memory institutions.
