Results of the Europeana User Survey 2014

Every two years, we conduct such a survey to better understand what our users do when they arrive on Europeana.eu and how they feel about using the website to search, browse and share Europe’s cultural collections. The feedback that we receive from these user surveys has been integral in the continued development of the Europeana.eu website and related services, it also helps us grasp who our users are, how they generally rate our service and how they think Europeana.eu compares with other services on the web. In the five years that Europeana has existed, we have conducted three user surveys, the previous two being in 2009 and 2011. Our last user survey, which was launched in Q1 of 2014, was a collaborative effort between a number of teams in Europeana together with User Vision - a UK based usability and accessibility design consultancy.

Today, Àlex Hinojo, GLAM projects director at Amical Viquipèdia, tells us how Europeana is used to enhance Catalan Wikipedia articles.

How Europeana helps Wikipedia editor and GLAM ambassador

As a GLAM Ambassador (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) in Barcelona, I work to facilitate and improve the relationships between the Catalan GLAM sector and the local free knowledge community. Once heritage is digitised, catalogued, wikified and put online, it must come back to the people, so I'm looking for new ways to engage people with cultural heritage and share cultural commons. Since I discovered Europeana, I use it more and more every day. Local Wikipedians during an outreach activity in Barcelona, Wikimedia Commons, CC-BY-SA 3.0. New recommendations outline ways to strengthen Europeana’s future relationship with Wikimedia. In light of the Europeana 2020 strategic plan, what shape should Europeana’s relationship to Wikipedia and the wider Wikimedia community take in the years to come?

New recommendations outline ways to strengthen Europeana’s future relationship with Wikimedia

To find an answer to this question, a Europeana Network Task Force was formed with a mix of people drawn from the Europeana network of GLAMs as well as active members of the Wikimedia community. It was chaired by Jesse de Vos from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, now at Wikimedia Netherlands, and had a clear mission to reach final recommendations that benefited both Europeana and Wikimedia. Together, the group has produced a report outlining ten ways in which Europeana and Wikimedia can build on their successful cooperation. The first task was to create an overview of all past Wikimedia activities that Europeana has had involvement in. Session Timed Out.
