Europeana: Think Culture
Kail, Candice
Journal of Web Librarianship, v5 n3 p256-261 2011
Europeana: Think Culture (http://www.europeana.eu) is a wonderful cultural repository. It includes more than 15 million items (images, text, audio, and video) from 1,500 European institutions. Europeana provides access to an abundance of cultural and heritage information and knowledge. Because Europeana has partnered with and brought together so many different institutions, it offers an unrivaled digital collection of art, literature, scientific information, historical information, music, film, photography, and audio, as well as manuscripts, rare materials, and archives. From the expansive collections of the Louvre to smaller, local institutions, such as a public library in Bulgaria, Europeana makes Europe's vast and historical store of cultural and scientific information available in a new way to today's researchers, scholars, and interested users, as well as to future generations. (Contains 3 notes and 3 figures.)
