this is a gentle reminder to those of you who would like to share their
experiences of creating EDM mappings, refinements and extensions with us.
We have started this task force  to collect and make available all the
mappings, refinements and extensions you have been working on in your
institutions or projects. It should become a living inventory and a source
for the Europeana Network to avoid reinventing the wheel.
We would also be thankful for any pointers to projects that are not
finished yet, so we can include them at a later stage.
Please find attached the survey that we would like you to complete as soon
as possible and please feel free to ask for clarification where needed!
Thank you for your support!

> Dear all,
> The Europeana Data Model (EDM) plays an important role in Europeana's
> network of projects and providers. The number of contributing content
> partners is steadily increasing within this network and with this also the
> number of metadata formats, schema, etc. the EDM has to integrate. A lot
> of different projects and partners have been working on different
> adaptations, refinements and mappings since the creation of the EDM
> without a central reference that would provide an overview of all these
> We have therefore decided to launch a new task force on "EDM mappings,
> refinements and extensions". You will find the charter of the task force
> in attachment for more details on the objectives and planned activities.
> The task force counts invited representatives from projects which have
> already published mappings and extensions to/of EDM. We count also on your
> contribution if the matter is relevant for you.
> If you have already produced mappings, extensions or an application
> profile to/of EDM, please fill in the template in attachment and send it
> to this list / or directly to us.
> We thank you in advance for your contribution.
> Best wishes,
