Moving to new Europeana Data Model (EDM)

Europeana and partners have been working hard for more than two years to change the data model behind Europeana from its original and simple ESE (Europeana Semantic Elements) to the richer EDM (Europeana Data Model). EDM allows us to make explicit links between Europeana objects, e.g. the different volumes of an encyclopedia, or between an object and contextual information, e.g. an object and the geographic location it relates to, and allows us to display more than one image for each entry.
