VEKAM’s content will be on LoCloud

LoCloud Project, funded by the European Commission, aims to present the content from small and medium local institutions such as museums, archives and libraries in the digital European arena. Cloud-based technology will offer an affordable and userfriendly solution for making their content available on-line. Turkey will take part in the Project with The Vehbi Koç and Ankara Research Center (VEKAM). The Project has started on the 1st of March, and will run for three years.

LoCloud aims to develop cloud-based technology and services to help small and medium local institutions to aggregate their digital resources and make them accessible on-line, via Europeana.eu, the European Library, Museum and Archive.

The project will explore the potential of a cloud-based technology infrastructure for aggregating local content. It will also develop a number of micro-services offering geo-location and metadata enrichment, multilingual vocabularies for local history and archaeology, a historical place name gazetteer and a Wikimedia application to handling relevant ‘crowd-sourced’ content. As a result of the LoCloud’s activities, access to over 4 million items of digital content will be made available  through Europeana. LoCloud relies on a large group of technical partners, content providers, aggregating services and partners with specific expertise which make together a very strong consortium.
