Demo and Training

BHL-Europe - show & tell, demonstration & training

The BHL-Europe project is coming to an end on 30 April 2012. However, BHL-Europe will continue to exist. Content users are invited to work with the portal and with the virtual exhibition. Content users are invited to provide feedback and we should be able to respond to it. On the other side, content providers will continue to upload and ingest content, so more content is coming in every day. Content providers will also continue to digitise content, so we expect a continuous increase in content contribution. on 5 June 2012, we would like to show all you the various products and outcomes of the project and demonstrate what you can do with what we delivered. We also would like to provide some intensive training for all interested content users and content providers on how to work with our tools and services now and in the future. For now this is the last chance to see the BHL-Europe consortium together, so everybody interested what we done is invited to join this day to see how BHL-Europe is contributing to the growing and global world of BHL. This is what we plan for this day:
