Europeana

Interested in learning more about the treasures of Europe’s museums and libraries but can’t make the trip over? Europeana is definitely a good substitute, as it provides 15+ million images, texts, sounds recordings, and videos! The website’s stated goal is very close to my librarian heart, as it is to “make Europe’s cultural and scientific heritage accessible to the public.”

You can search the website’s holdings either via the search box on the homepage, or you can click “advanced search” for more refined search options. In order to better find what you are looking for, you can refine searches by provider, country, type, rights access, etc… Europeana is very tech savvy, as users are able to share search results with others via numerous social media, including Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.
