Survey: help us understand your needs

Archives Portal Europe (APE) has teamed up with Europeana to create a survey open to all archival institutions that are currently content providers to APE and/or Europeana, or that are potentially interested in participating. In particular, we wish to explore:

  • The benefits and advantages that institutions with archival holdings find in their collaboration with aggregators such as APE and Europeana, 
  • Potential concerns and doubts that you may have in your current or prospective collaboration, 
  • The connections that you see between these international aggregators and national, regional, or topic- or material-based aggregators that you might be collaborating with.

We are therefore inviting any institution with archival holdings – whether you already provide content to APE and/or Europeana or not – to answer this short, 10-minute survey by Thursday, 1 April 2021, and to share your thoughts with us. 

The survey is available in five languages:

and your input will be highly appreciated. 

Please also share this survey widely!

History Day 2018

Just like last year, Archives Portal Europe and Archives Hub participated to History Day, the Libraries & Archives Fair organised every year by the Institute of Historical Research in London.

History Day is a one-day event bringing together researchers with information professionals from libraries, archives and research organisations. The event is free for anyone interested in historical research and includes an open history fair where archival institutions and research organisations present their holdings and activities.

We met researchers from all over the world interested in quite a broad selection of topics, from Italian urbanisation in the 13th century to the colonial history of Ghana. Archivists will certainly receive enquiries from new Archives Portal Europe followers!

Have a look at the Twitter story on the event to see what else happened that day.
