Dear Partners,

Europeana has published its first White Paper 
<http://version1.europeana.eu/web/europeana-project/whitepapers> : a look at 
the key role linked data will play in Europeana's development and in helping 
Europe's citizens make connections between existing knowledge to achieve new 
cultural and scientific advances.

The White Paper has been written by Prof. Stefan Gradmann - a professor for 
Library and Information Science at Humboldt University in Berlin, an expert in 
semantic technology and someone who many of you will know through his work to 
build Europeana.

In the White Paper, Prof. Gradmann explains how linked data opens up 
Europeana's potential to be seen as much more than a simple collection of 
digital objects.

Using an example from the experimental Thought Lab 
<http://europeana.eu/portal/thought-lab.html> , Prof. Gradmann illustrates how 
a search for 'Paris' intuitively leads to connected concepts like items in the 
Louvre, a Paris-based institution. It also gives the option to see paintings 
portraying people named Paris, such as the Greek prince, who abducted of Helen 
of Troy. From there, more links point the way to topics like the 'myth of 
Paris' or the mythical Apple of Discord - a golden apple that sparked a dispute 
and eventually led to the Trojan War - and then on to the forbidden apple eaten 
by Adam and Eve.

This is just one example of how linked data will allow Europeana to propose 
connections between millions of items from Europe's heritage. These connections 
can then be used to generate new ideas and knowledge, on a scale not possible 

Prof. Gradmann places this advanced search technology at the heart of 
Europeana's purpose.

"One of Europeana's main roles should be to help Europe's citizens create a new 
era of knowledge from our shared culture and history."
