This project focuses on Open Archives and Arts. In Europe, there is Europeana.eu, an internet portal that acts as an interface to millions of books, paintings, films, museum objects and archival records that have been digitised throughout Europe. However, there is no such thing in Asia, and it is necessary for us to have one in Asia, as it gives access to different types of content from different types of heritage/arts institutions. The project will explore the possibility of having arts database in Asia and the importance of having one in Asia, by taking Europeana.eu as the example.Read more about getting involved
