Padova: Venetonight - the European researchers’ night in Veneto


23 September 2011 - Events organised by other institutions

The Researchers’ Night was promoted by the European Commission with the aim of giving citizens the opportunity to meet researchers, reinforcing the relationship between science, school and society and encouraging young people to explore the world of research. Inside this initiative the Library System of the University of Padua presented the Linked Heritage project.
Attendees were impressed by the quality of the project. They had not previously realised that libraries and museums were so deeply involved in the digital revolution. Most of them had not yet heard of Europeana!

Within the poster session four librarians – from the University Library System –presented to the attendees – Students, citizens, children – the activities, and goals of the project Linked Heritage. In particular, with the assistance of the poster attached, they were then able to illustrated their work package “Dissemination & Training” and its relation with Europeana. Furthermore they presented Phaidra, the new digital asset management system with long-term archiving functions of the University of Padua.
