A truly networked and ambitious project, Europeana makes available an incredible quantity (and quality) of material from authoritative sources all across Europe and is quickly gaining great expectations among scholars and users as well.
With more than 100 partners and as many contributors throughout the EU, this project takes advantage of a professional staff and an institutional network to give free access to millions of digital items
Divided in four main groups based on item kinds (texts, images, sounds, videos), Europeana content is highly integrated and well presented, thus becoming easily accessible for users of any expertise
Currently covering 2 million items and planning to reach 6 million by 2010, the site makes available an incredible quantity (and quality) of material from authoritative sources all across Europe
With material from national and International archives or Institutes of Social History, libraries and museum, Europeana is a great source for anybody involved in the PS and Social field
After the first batch of 2 million digital items, we should expect to see new items available quite frequently
