We are a multicultural, diverse and dynamic group of people that work together because we believe that we can transform the world with culture.

At the office, we are honest and open about our ideas and work with integrity. We get to be who we are when we come to work, and our skills and competencies are required, celebrated, and expected to be shared with the people we engage with professionally. Our office culture encourages, celebrates, and supports us naturally by letting us use our talents and in return, we are centered on customers and offering great customer experiences.

We work in teams, we work in cross-teams, and we work guided by our core values; usable, mutual and reliable. Through this, our work contributes to an open, knowledgeable and creative society. These values, based on the Europeana Commons principles, apply to working with each other in the office as well as to our dealings with our partners, stakeholders and users. We do all of this together. We love culture, we engage and we play, and we want to be of service.

We work with a network of cultural organizations to provide creative and innovative forms of access to culture. Our work is guided by creative collaboration, supportive teamwork and the idea that sharing and reusing cultural content can transform the world. We represent centuries of trusted guardianship by Europe’s cultural institutions so must always ensure that whilst we’re pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with today’s technology, our products and resources are robust and reliable. Our office is based in the National Library of the Netherlands, next to The Hague Central Station.
