These services are applicable to all digital libraries and include: Searching multimedia objects based on metadata and on content similarity; executable Ranking algorithm for improve results display; Browsing multimedia objects for rapid navigation through semantic cross-links; Interfaces especially designed for interacting with multimedia objects; planning digital preservation services; Ingestion of metadata requiring normalization, cleaning, knowledge extraction and mapping to a common structure. The main expected outcomes from ASSETS are: a) A set of value-added search, browsing and long-term access services to enhance the content accessibility and improve the usability of Europeana operational services. b) Making new multimedia digital content available to and accessible by Europeana portal, as delivered by those ASSETS content providers which so far did not take part in the Europeana service. c) A large-scale validated services in the real Europeana context of use. d) A set of recommendations, guidelines and best practices concerning the technology adaptation, and service rolling up, which strongly contributes to the promotion of the standards and specifications addressed in Europeana, and pave the way for an increased interoperability. The European-wide coverage of the ASSETS consortium, which includes 24 partners coming from 10 European countries and Japan, and its multi-disciplinary dimension, including all the significant stakeholders in the DL value chain (cultural institutions, research organisations, ICT players, content providers), and the strong involvement of the EDL Foundation (which is responsible for the overall strategy and policy for Europeana) will enable an effective and broader networking activities, and further promoting the adoption of the recommendations envisaged within the ASSETS project.
