Work package 3 of the ATHENA project (WP3) is tasked with:
1. Reviewing the different standards in use by museums;
2. Facilitating the mapping of those standards to a common metadata standard;
3. Assessing the requirements for the persistent identification of digital objects and collections;
4.Producing tools to support the conversion of museums’ data into the common harvesting format for ingestion into the main Europeana service.
WP3 also works together with other work packages in the project. In particular WP3 works closely with WP4 and WP7: feeding information about standards for their work. Also the survey which is the basis of this deliverable was extended to include collecting information on IPR issues for use within WP6.
