LoCloud project is developing a cloud-based infrastructure to be used by small and mediumsized local heritage institutions, to make their digital collections discoverable through Europeana (www.europeana.eu), the great Europeana digital library. Moreover, LoCloud will offer a series of services, including a geo-location tool, a collection management system, multilingual vocabularies for local history and archaeology, and historic placenames. These services will enrich the digital content, increasing its usefulness, and enhance the user’s experience.
