New “Europeana Collections” Website (Beta) Now Live

From Europeana:

The new site offers visitors an immersive cultural experience. Its fresh, clean design makes it easy to navigate.

Improved search and filters, including innovative colour searches (try this one for ‘Dark slate blue’) and quality searches (find our very best maps of Paris), mean finding what you’re looking for is simple.

Better, bigger previews, a zoom function for high resolution images and documents (get really close up to this Monet), direct play for video (try this silent film) and audio (listen to this Maria Callas aria) and a new download option mean less time clicking and more time engrossed in cultural content.

Clear copyright information shows you what you can and can’t do with the treasures you find.


[Our emphasis] The name is new too – ‘Europeana Collections’ lets visitors know that Europeana brings digital culture from diverse sources across Europe together. Europeana Collections is a doorway to Europe’s rich digital heritage and a showcase for the Europeana digital platform.
