House museums survey

A public survey for house-museums in Europe has been recently launched by LoCLoud. The survey, developed by Fondazione Ranieri di Sorbello, one of the project partners, aims to gather information from European house museums about their digitised collections.

LoCloud’s work on cloud  computing technologies  for Europeana, will focus on small and medium sized institutions, including house-museums.

House-museums’ collections (which currently are not represented in Europeana), are of diverse type and closely linked to the locality of the city, region or territory they are located in. They tell the story of people or places which have played an important role in the past. Bringing part of these collections (those available in digital format) into Europeana would make a very important contribution to the on-line availability of Europe’s cultural heritage.
