External Items Collection

The External Collection gathers within the BYZART database all the Byzantine-related items that are already visible in the Europeana Platform, which belong to institutional and private data-providers other than the BYZART project partners. Thus, the BYZART consortium cannot guarantee the completeness and the correctness of the metadata related to the External Collection's items, nor has the right and the ability to modify them.
