  • Ask which partners currently provides metadata aggregation ?
  • Current europeana ecosystem Many different systems being run by each different aggregator – there are technical costs and staff costs in running independent systems But there are transactional costs – costs of tranferring data, checking data. And what happens if an aggregator wants to take enriched data, or even data from a different source. The end point is always Europeana
  • Different type of system – where aggregators share a technical framework with
  •   What advantages might the aggregation of digitised content from Europeana cultural heritage institutions bring for researchers? What benefits might different levels of authentication over such an aggregation of content permit? What kind of tools could be built on top of that infrastructure and which of them are the most appropriate to support this kind of communities (ie tools for transcription, tools for data analysis, tools for visualising or enriching metadata, tools for sharing)? And, importantly, how might these findings and information relate to other infrastructures, both existing and future ones?
