E-Space Portal: where culture meets creativity
The Portal developed in the E-Space project provides services for content aggregation, management, interoperability, visualisation, publication and reuse. The platform streamlines existing workflows and introduces creative new uses for digital cultural heritage.
For Aggregators it uses the metadata interoperability platform MINT that fully implements workflows for the ingestion, formal mapping, and transformation of metadata records. Services include validation, quality checking, data cleaning & normalisation, and previews, while the platform can implement a variety of publication approaches (such as OAI-PMH, SPARQL endpoint, and REST API) for the resulting repository.
For Content Holders it offers an easy to use content & metadata repository and management system that can ensure interoperability with standards, best practices and aggregator guidelines. The platform includes a customisable portal for the visualisation of digital collections, exhibitions and stories, while facilitating the public’s access to content available for creative reuse.
Cultural Heritage Professionals are offered the tools to compose and contextualise eclectic collections, contributing to the promotion, improvement, and evolution of digital CH knowledge. The Creative Industry is using the platform as a back-end to build applications that reuse digital heritage.
The E-Space Portal is a great starting point for Users to discover cultural heritage resources that reside in distributed repositories. They can combine different sources with their own material, allowing them to offer new interesting narratives for the appreciation and communication of culture.
