In June 2021, the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum and Europeana Foundation will hold the first ever Aggregators’ Fair! The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) is the national aggregator to Europeana for Ireland and will be contributing to the Fair. DRI’s Dr Kathryn Cassidy will give a demonstration of DRI’s 3D Viewer as part of the Fair's programme of talks.

About the Europeana Aggregators Forum

Aggregators work with cultural heritage institutions to gather authentic, trustworthy and robust data, and to make it accessible for people to enjoy, use and reuse online.  The Europeana Aggregators’ Forum is a network of organisations who work with cultural heritage institutions to provide this content and metadata to Europeana. The Forum comes together to share knowledge, ideas and best practices, and the Aggregators’ Fair is an opportunity to find out more about the work they do! 

Join us on 16 and 17 June 2021

On 16 and 17 June 2021, 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. The exciting programme gives participants the opportunity to listen to inspiring speakers, join panel discussions, take in training webinars and ask questions of the people working in aggregation. 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 and we aim to have plenty of interest for both newcomers as well as longtime partners. 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.
