Europeana Aggregators’ Fair
On 16 and 17 June 2021 the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum and Europeana Foundation will hold the first ever Aggregators’ Fair! At this event, the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum will open their virtual doors to cultural heritage professionals and anyone with an interest in high quality, open cultural heritage content. It will be a great opportunity to find out more about how high quality cultural heritage content is being made accessible to new audiences through Europeana, and how you can get involved.
The Fair will highlight the current state of affairs in the aggregation of digitised cultural heritage to Europeana. In parallel sessions you will hear from national and thematic aggregators on how they have developed their activities, and work with Europeana to share and enrich digital content. As well as hearing from the Dutch, Greek, Irish and German national Aggregators, these talks will also cover audiovisual archives, architecture and archaeology, and tools for aggregation. And if you are interested in reuse best practices, and keen to hear more about building capacity for aggregation and developing and producing training, don’t miss the three panel sessions covering these topics. Finally, a series of ignite talks will provide an opportunity for a quick dive into the world of aggregation.
Archives Portal Europe will take part in the event with two sessions: our Research and Engagement Manager Marta Musso will talk about “Archives Portal Europe: towards a Google of Archives” (16 June, 14.45 CET); our Manager & Technical Coordinator Kerstin Arnold will hold the session “From Archives Portal Europe to Europeana: getting archival data ready for cross-domain publication” (17 June).
