How is the European Film Gateway related to Europeana?
The European Film Gateway is part of the Europeana network. The Europeana portal available at www.europeana.eu gives people access to millions of digitised objects from Europe's museums, libraries, archives and audiovisual collections. To get the data into Europeana, they work mainly with aggregators, rather than with individual institutions. The EFG functions as such an aggregator for the film archive sector. We gather material from the individual film archives, standardise the metadata, harmonise vocabularies and channel it into the Europeana portal. All the material that can be found in the EFG is also searchable via Europeana, where it is complemented by related material coming from other cultural institutions.
