Nick Poole CEO says “This new search brings unprecedented access to culture, heritage and the arts. It also highlights how opening up collections through services such as Culture Grid and Europeana, (the European Cultural Portal), brings many benefits for collections. These include: enhancing connections between collections; increasing the online visibility of collections; and driving the creation of new ways for people to find and engage with collections, both online and on the ground.”

The search was developed by Collection Trust Technical Partners Gooii Ltd, with support from Knowledge Integration Ltd.

The search uses the Culture Grid and Europeana APIs.
