  1. Searching and browsing film archives – The European Film Gateway approach Cultural Heritage 2009 Cairo, Egypt 6-8 December 2009 Pasquale Savino – ISTI-CNR Franca Debole – ISTI-CNR Georg Eckes - DIF

  2. Initial Situation:Why a European Film Gateway? • growing number of digitisation projects and repositories of digital collections  need for a registry of collections, items and film-specific authority files on a trans-institutional, trans-national level • Lack of common standards for database & record structures suitable for the needs of film archives  need for common interoperability standards • flickr, youTube etc. influence user expectations, digital libraries initiatives are on their way  challenge for film archives to go along • lack of knowledge and best practices when it comes to dealing with IPR issues in the context of web-based access  need to join experiences

  3. Goals and Objectives:What is EFG supposed to achieve? • build a „digital showcase“ for collections of Europe‘s film archives and cinematheques • Moving images: Films and film clips, trailers etc. • Images: Posters, images, stills, drawings etc. • Text material: Reviews, correspondance, censoship documents etc. • Sound material: Interviews etc. • make collections accessible through a common access point • create a registry of digital objects and filmographic authority records • link Europe‘s film archives and cinemathequeswith Europeana and operate as an “Aggregator” for Europeana • make more than 700.000 photographs, posters, texts, audio documents, films and film clips covering more than 100 years of film history accessible by 2011

  4. Objectives • Defining a metadata schema which is able to describe the complexity of EFG data structures, relationships, and content and that can support search and browsing capabilities • Joining archives and filmographies and support export of complex metadata structures (OAI-PMH) • Cleaning and consolidating data from heterogeneous sources • Enriching content (tagging archival resources and filmographic editing) • Clearing rights where necessary

  5. Partner Institutions:Who is behind EFG?

  6. Goals and Objectives:What is EFG supposed to achieve?

  7. Definition of a common interoperability schema • Approach • The schema was designed taking into account the specific application scenario • Looking at existing models, in order to take into account previous experiences and to simplify the schema mapping • The model is based on the User needs defined in EFG • Maintain a compatibility with ESE in order to simplify the ingestion process into Europeana

  8. The EFG Metadata Schema

  9. The EFG Metadata Schema • An AV Creation Corresponds to a Cinematographic work as defined in EN 15907. • Main elements: • Identifier • Title • Record Source • Identifying Title • Country of Reference • Production Year • Keywords • Description • Note • UserTag • ViewFilmography

  10. The EFG Metadata Schema • An AV Manifestation is the physical embodiment of an audio visual creation. For example, it may contain the different national versions, different productions of the same AV Creation. • Main elements: • Identifier • Title • Record Source • Language • Dimension • Duration • Coverage • Format • Rights holder • Provenance • Thumbnail • Note

  11. The EFG Metadata Schema • An Item contains a reference to the external resource. For a single AV Manifestation we may have several Items stored in different archives. • Main elements: • Identifier • IsShownBy • IsShownAt • Format • Provider • URI • Country • Note

  12. The EFG Metadata Schema • Examples of Non AV Creations are pictures, photos, correspondence, books or periodicals • Main elements: • Identifier • Title • Record Source • Keywords • Description • Date Created • Language • Note • UserTag

  13. The EFG Metadata Schema • A Non AV Manifestation is the physical embodiment of an Non AV Creation. • Main elements: • Identifier • Title • Record Source • Type • Language • Date • Digital Format • Physical Format • Geographic Scope • Coverage • Rights holder • Provenance • Thumbnail • Note

  16. An example of the use of theEFG Metadata Schema • Title: “2001: A Space Odissey” • Record Source: IMDB • Identifying Title: “2001: A Space Odissey” • Country of Reference: • Production Year: 1968 • Keywords: Science Fiction, HAL, intelligent computer • Description: “Mankind finds a mysterious, obviously artificial, artifact buried on the moon and, with the intelligent computer HAL, sets off on a quest”

  17. An example of the use of theEFG Metadata Schema • Title: “2001: A Space Odissey” • Record Source: IMDB • Identifying Title: “2001: A Space Odissey” • Country of Reference: • Production Year: 1968 • Keywords: Science Fiction, HAL, intelligent computer • Description: “Mankind finds a mysterious, obviously artificial, artifact buried on the moon and, with the intelligent computer HAL, sets off on a quest” • Title: “2001: A Space Odissey” • Record Source: “MGM” • Language:EN • Duration: 160 min • Title: “2001: OdisseanelloSpazio” • Record Source: “CinetecaNazionale” • Language: IT • Duration: 141 min
