Europeana Newspapers



Anunciado em Fevereiro do presente ano, o Europeana Newspapers já dispõe de website próprio. O projecto tem como objectivo digitalizar jornais, com especial ênfase para aqueles que foram publicados durante a Primeira Guerra Mundial, disponibilizando-os posteriormente de forma gratuita e sem qualquer tipo de restrições legais através do Europeana.
A group of 17 European partner institutions have joined forces in the “Europeana Newspapers” project and will, over the next 3 years, provide more than 10 million newspaper pages to the EUROPEANA service.
The Europeana Newspapers project (funded under EC’s CIP 2007 – 2013) aims at the aggregation and refinement of newspapers for The European Library and Europeana. In addition, the project addresses challenges particularly linked with digitized newspapers:
  • use of refinement methods for OCR, OLR/article segmentation, and named entity recognition (NER), and page class recognition to enhance search and presentation functionalities for Europeana customers,
  • quality evaluation for automatic refinement technologies,
  • transformation of local metadata to the Europeana Data Model (EDM)
  • metadata standardization in close collaboration with stakeholders from the public and private sector.
