Europeana aggregators

Aggregators work with cultural heritage institutions to gather authentic, trustworthy and robust data and make it accessible through Europeana. All Europeana aggregators are members of the Europeana Aggregators' Forum (EAF), a network of national, regional, domain and thematic aggregators who - among others - work to exchange the knowledge and best practice that supports aggregation and data sharing with Europeana. 

Domain & thematic

Domain and thematic aggregators define their scope by cultural sector (such as museum, archive or library) or by topic and theme (such as fashion). They work with contributors based in different European countries.

National & regional

National and regional aggregators define their scope by specific country or region. They work with contributors situated within that country or region.

Steering Group

The Steering Group of the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum is made up of three elected representatives from accredited aggregators and one representative of the Europeana Foundation. 

Outreach

The Europeana Aggregators’ Forum organises regular events to show cultural heritage institutions how they can engage with and share their data with Europeana.
