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
Neelie Kroes Visits Europeana Libraries’ Partner
Neelie Kroes, European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Agenda, had an unexpected but welcome introduction to Europeana Libraries.
Kroes was visiting the Hungarian Parliament, when a break in her schedule allowed for a short tour of the Library of the Hungarian Parliament, a Europeana Libraries' partner.
“We were able to introduce our digitisation project and Europeana Libraries to her. She was very interested in the information, and we prepared a small folder for the Commissioner, which included the Europeana Libraries press release,” said Agnes Koreny Kovácsné, project manager of the library, who greeted Commissioner Kroes.
