Europeanas executive director uttaler:
We’re really pleased to launch the first ever Europeana app. By downloading Europeana Open Culture, more people can now explore, share and have fun with Europe’s cultural heritage. It’s only a small snapshot of the whole of Europeana’s collections but small is beautiful. We’re enthusiastic and excited about the ‘Connect’ feature which you can use to link images to articles elsewhere on the web, or to content in Wikipedia. And for the first time, you can make your own comments on the individual images.

350.000 bilder er tilgjenglig fra seks institusjoner

  • Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, UK
  • Rijksmuseum, The Netherlands
  • National Library of Poland
  • The Archaeological Museum, Portugal
  • Bulgarian Academy of Sciences
  • Digital Library of the Spanish Ministry of Defence
