The Europeana Initiative is a network organisation at every level. As such, we rely on a network of partner aggregators to manage content from 3,500 institutions. Aggregators harvest the data from cultural heritage institutions, help to model the data, expand the network of organisations, assist with copyright queries and much more.
We work with three types of aggregators:
National aggregators, whose scope is defined by a specific country or region and whose contributors are situated within that country or region;
Domain aggregators, 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 aggregators, 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 refer to this network of aggregators, institutions and our own facilitators at Europeana Foundation as the Aggregators landscape. If you look at the diagram of these relationships below, you will see why.
We currently work with 31 aggregators. Their details are listed below. Browse the aggregators and choose which best suits your needs. You must contact your chosen aggregator directly using the contact details on each page.
