Erfgoedplus.be is an activity of the Provincial Centre for Cultural Heritage (PCCE) of the Province of Limburg, Belgium. Since 2007 Erfgoedplus.be collects information about the province’s cultural heritage from available inventories and databases and publishes it collectively as a searchable database on the internet, using the technology for the semantic web. As a result of another province having joined the initiative, the database currently holds over 86.000 objects from about 245 mainly local collections. Since 2009 Erfgoedplus.be acts as an aggregator for Europeana. Provincie Limburg was a partner in EuropeanaLocal and is involved in the Europeana Awareness project.
