In the Enrich Europeana project a crowdsourcing platform is developed that will enable users to transcribe and enrich cultural heritage material from Europeana Collections as well as national aggregator portals. The focus is on handwritten objects (e.g. letters, notes, diaries etc.). Additionally, a wide variety of other cultural heritage material will be available on the platform. The goal is to promote a deeper engagement, understanding and access to European digital cultural heritage, with a positive impact for European citizens, and educational and research institutions. The Austrian National Library contributes to project communication and the technical implementation of the crowdsourcing platform.
