Why newspapers?


  „Newspapers are the second hand of history“

Arthur Schopenhauer

  „Newspapers are one of the most popular material types in our library, because they are
  so rich with information and thus appeal to such a wide range of people. Adding 2 million
  of our digitised newspaper pages to Europeana Newspapers provides users with a more
  elaborate experience and we are very happy to offer them this chance.“

Lily Knibbeler,
Head of the Marketing & Services of the National Library of the Netherlands
