An open source tool to share data from Europe’s libraries and museums


Some of Europe’s greatest treasures are books, a part of the history which is carefully documented and stored in our many libraries, archives and museums. However, although our history is intricately interconnected, our repositories don’t necessarily have the technology to effectively link and share their content. Museums and libraries often have their own data codification and representation methods which means that the information may not accessible to web search engines and to other institutions. This is why ALIADA decided to create a tool that will overcome the limitations of current library or collection management software when sharing content, allowing libraries, archives and museums to automatically publish and link the content they host.
