Europeana Libraries

Europeana Libraries is a 2-year project, working to put 5 million digitised objects from 19 leading European research libraries online. When complete, the new website will include books, scientific papers, films and images. Spanish civil war photographs, Ottoman manuscripts and thousands of theses, journals and academic articles are among the digital resources that Europeana Libraries will make freely accessible on The European Library and Europeana websites. The work of Europeana Libraries will:

* Create a valuable resource for scholars, with full-text search capabilities for written works
* Build a robust network of national, university and research libraries
* Establish an efficient aggregation model that can be used by research libraries across Europe
