API access for Drupal sites to Europeana

Europeana is the European digital library initiative; it “enables people to explore the digital resources of Europe’s museums, libraries, archives and audio-visual collections. It promotes discovery and networking opportunities in a multilingual space where users can engage, share in and be inspired by the rich diversity of Europe’s cultural and scientific heritage.”
The Europeana API module can integrate content from the European digital library into Drupal in two ways:

  • searching Europeana inside Drupal
  • importing content as Europeana nodes

I really like the idea as the Europeana project is pretty amazing. Unfortunately the API for Drupal only supports Drupal 6 .
FYI: You will need an API key.
