  • The European Library is a free service that offers access to the resources of the 48 national libraries of Europe. Resources can be both digital (books, posters, maps, sound recordings, videos, etc.) and bibliographical. The European Library became fully operational in March 2005. The partners in The European Library are all members of the Conference of European National Librarians (CENL), a foundation aiming at increasing and reinforcing the role of national libraries in Europe. Members of CENL are the national librarians of all Member States of the Council of Europe. [CLICK] Going back to The European Library, here is a map that shows the new projects bringing in new searchable collections into the portal. This was possible thanks to European co-funding. Projects continue to build upon The European Library service. [CLICK]
  • The European Library also provides other services to the public on national libraries’ behalf: It provides a quick presentation of national libraries It provides a multilingual interface It provides API’s It communicates to the larger community through its newsletter and rich media content It showcases the added-value of this common platform of exchange through virtual exhibitions [CLICK]

  • Ongoing User testing: Usability study on Danube prototypes currently being undertaken; Online user survey is set up as we speak, to be online before summer. End user activities: Social media: Europeana is progressively active on facebook and Twitter, with around 5000 facebook friends and 1769 Twitter followers. The First World War archive was launched a few weeks ago. It is based on an initiative at the University of Oxford where people across Britain were asked to bring family letters, photographs and keepsakes from the War to be digitised. Europeana has brought the German National Library into an alliance with Oxford University to do the same in Germany. The collaboration will bring German stories online alongside their British counterparts in a 1914-18 archive.
