The Europeana API (Application Programming Interface) is a web service which provides remote access to the Europeana collections.

The Europeana API allows you to build applications, websites and mash-ups that include a customised view of Europeana content. You choose how much information is shown, where, and in what format. To start developing your own applications, register for an API key.

To find out how you and your users can benefit from the Europeana API services, watch the video below or download our API leaflet.
