Achievements Achievements

Adding music audio to Europeana • About 350, 000 audio items were made available Adding music audio to Europeana • About 350, 000 audio items were made available through Europeana via the DISMARC-Europeana. Connect Audio Aggregation Platform • A virtual Audio Exhibition was developed (http: //econnect. ait. co. at/wedding-exhibition/) (http: //exhibitions. europeana. eu/exhibits/show/weddings-in-easterneurope/themes). It delivers content on 'Weddings in Eastern Europe' and includes audio, text, images and video • The Audio Aggregation Platform can be fully or partly deployed on a ‘virtual machine’ which requires only a computer system with an internet connection • Set of tools for content management developed • Enable content owners to manage their data online and allow users to add their own comments about particular pieces of music
