Introduction to Europeana

Europeana is Europe’s digital cultural heritage platform. It currently provides access to over 55 million digitized items from more than 3.500 European libraries, museums, archives and galleries. This huge database represents a great media, thematic and language variety – you can find images/text/audio/video/3D content on anything from art, architecture, maps, films, natural history, fashion and more in over 27 languages. A big part of this content – over 20 million items- is openly licensed and can be freely reused in various work and learning projects.

You can easily search Europeana via key words or by colour, people, time period, and topics or explore curated resources, ranging from virtual exhibitions and galleries, to thematic collections on World War I, Art, Music, Fashion, Photography or Migration, with two new collections coming in 2018, Newspapers and Manuscripts.
