SearchCulture.gr is a cultural digital space developed by EKT in collaboration with Digital Convergence. It aggregates Greek Digital Cultural Content produced by institutions through public funding.
The objectives of this project in accordance with national priorities and European policies are: to provide free and central access to digital cultural resources, tο promote and interconnect Greek cultural digital content and to integrate it into Europeana.
EKT aggregates through SearchCulture.gr the national cultural content and provides it, as a major aggregator, to the european digital library Europeana.
This way, the Greek cultural heritage is internationally promoted.
EKT enriches and homogenizes the aggregated content with respect to types and chronological information. Therefore, the content of SearchCulture.gr is been classified to a compact and balanced set of types, to historical periods and is enriched with homogenized chronologies.
This allowed us to develop advanced multilingual search and browsing features, including hierarchical navigation and search on types, historical periods and time spans, a tag cloud of popular types and an interactive timeline.
EKT has set specific requirements against which it validates and certifies the aggregated content at daily basis.
The requirements regard a variety of standards on metadata, digital files and interoperability services of content management systems.
