OCLC and Europeana, the digital platform for European cultural heritage, are working together to add recent content easily discoverable and freely accessible to readers, researchers and students through libraries.
The addition of Europeana Collections will add dramatically to the open content resources that are accessible through WorldCat, the world’s most comprehensive database of information about library collections.
Europeana works with thousands of European archives, libraries and museums to share cultural heritage for enjoyment, education and research. Funded by the European Commission, Europeana provides free access to more than 50 million records of books, recordings, artwork and more, in a wide range of subject areas. Over 24 million of these are openly licensed and freely available for work, research and learning.
