Europeana Aggregating Digital Content from Research Libraries Across Europe (including Material from Google Books)
@calimaq has posted (in French) about a Europeana program that began at the beginning of 2011 to aggregate digital content from European libraries. The focus of the post is on what this might mean for digitized book content from Google. Here’s a mechanical translation of the post using Google Translate and another from Bing Translate.
You can read more about the aggregation via “Europeana Libraries: Aggregating digital content from Europe’s libraries” from the European Commission.
