As a small team based in The Hague, it would be impossible for us to interact directly with all 3,500 institutions at every stage. That’s why we’ve set up a network of partner aggregators. It’s the aggregators who do the data harvesting from cultural heritage organizations. They also help to model the data, expand the network of organizations, help out with copyright queries and much more.
We work with three types of aggregator:
- National aggregator, whose scope is defined by a specific country or region and whose contributors are situated within that country or region;
- Domain aggregator, whose scope is defined by a particular industry sector (such as museums, archives or libraries) and whose contributors are located in more than one country;
- Thematic aggregator, whose scope is defined by a particular topic or theme (such as fashion or food and drink) and whose contributors are located in more than one country.
We will shortly provide a list of all aggregators with their main contacts on this page. For the time being, please contact us via email, so we can help you to find the most suitable publication route for your digital collections.
