The Europeana Libraries project is working to make 5 million digital objects from 19 leading European research libraries freely accessible on The European Library and Europeana websites.

Spanish civil war photographs, Ottoman manuscripts, historic medical films and thousands of theses, journals and academic articles are among the digital resources that Europeana Libraries is working with. When the Project finishes at the end of 2012, it will have created:

  • A valuable resource for scholars, with full-text search capabilities for written works
  • A robust network of national, university and research libraries
  • An efficient aggregation model that can be used by research libraries across Europe

 

 

These 4 organisations form the bedrock of the Europeana Libraries project.

  • Europeana Foundation
  • CENL
  • CERL
  • LIBER
