  1. I find the most compelling motivation for aggregation of cultural heritage resources is when that process creates a platform that allows the collections to be used in new ways. The APIs provided by DPLA and Europeana, for example, make it much easier for small institutions to have their data available via an API. It also makes it much easier for those who want to use the collections in novel ways to do so, and to use much larger sets of data, rather than learning everyone’s local API schema.
