ATHENA: Access to cultural heritage networks across Europe

ATHENA has been developed as a project to specifically tackle the gap in existing content provision to the European Digital Library (Europeana). ATHENA has the objective to: reinforce, support and encourage the participation of museums and other institutions coming from those sectors of cultural heritage not fully involved yet in Europeana; coordinate standards and activities of museums across Europe; identify digital content present in European museums; contribute to the integration of the different sectors of cultural heritage, in cooperation with other projects more directly focused on libraries and archives, with the overall objective to merge these different contributions into Europeana; develop a plug-in which will be integrated within Europeana, to facilitate the access to digital contents belonging to European museums.
