8.4 Aggregated Metadata Consumers

Cite Permalink:
Aggregations of metadata must provide added value and adhere to open access principles so as to maximise their exposure and encourage service developers and others, such as researchers, to make use of them. It is vital to work closely with service developers to provide the capabilities they need, and thus the metadata to drive the services that their end-users need. The aggregator should also be prepared to provide aggregated metadata to other aggregators such as Europeana in the format of the defined schema. Furthermore, as many users use Google to search, aggregations of metadata should facilitate indexing by Google and other search providers to support discoverability.
