  2. 2. OutlineVisionWhat has happened,What is happeningWhat you can doWhat will you get out of a EuropeanDigital Library
  3. 3. EU Vision for a European digital library“A common multilingual access point would make itpossible to search Europe’s distributed – that is to say,held in different places by different organisations –digital cultural heritage online. Such an access pointwould increase its visibility and underline commonfeatures. The access point should build on existinginitiatives such as The European Library (TEL), inwhich Europe’s libraries already cooperate. It shouldwhere possible closely associate private holders ofrights in cultural material and all interestedstakeholders. A strong commitment by the Memberstates and cultural institutions to arrive at such anaccess point should be encouraged.” European Union Communiqué August 2006
  4. 4. With these goalsEnd 2006 full collaboration among EU national libraries.From 2007 collaboration to be expanded to archives andmuseums.2,000,000 books, films, photographs, manuscripts, andother cultural works accessible by 2008At least 6,000,000 works by 2010
  5. 5. Si mystérieux De tes traîtres yeux, Brillant à travers leurs larmes. Là, tout nest quordre et beauté, Luxe, calme et volupté. Des meubles luisants, Polis par les ans, Décoreraient notre chambre; Les plus rares fleurs Mêlant leurs odeurs Aux vagues senteurs de lambre, Les riches plafonds, Les miroirs profonds, La splendeur orientale, Tout y parlerait À lâme en secret Sa douce langue natale. Là, tout nest quordre et beauté, Luxe, calme et volupté. Vois sur ces canaux Dormir ces vaisseauxBy November vagabonde; Dont lhumeur est 2008 Cest pour assouvir Ton moindre désir
