ACTIVITY REPORT AND MILESTONE DOCUMENTS
MILESTONE 01: Selection and Digitisation Plan
This is the first milestone published by the consortium of the Action “The Art of Reading in the Middle Ages” (ARMA). The ARMA Action will show how medieval reading culture evolved and became a fundament of European culture and a European movement, using manuscripts and early printed books that were produced between c. 500 and c. 1550. The consortium partners will do so by bringing together digital collections of such medieval artefacts in Europeana and using these and other collections to create additional educational content and context.
This report is the result of Activity 1, Selection of Content. This Activity ran from 1 October 2020 (the start date of the ARMA Action) until the end of January 2021. The report presents a selection plan of the identified content and a digitisation plan. The list per partner will show metadata models used for content description, image quality and educational purposes and will be the basis for evaluating the necessary improvements in data quality according to the Europeana Publishing Framework (EPF). (Action (2019-EU-IA-0032) Grant Agreement, Annex 1, p.10).
