September 6, 2011. The Europeana Libraries project began September 5 to aggregate the first of the five million digital objects that the initiative envisions collecting from some of Europe's leading research and university libraries, including the University of Oxford's Bodleian Library, Trinity College Dublin and Sweden's Lund University.
The two-year project, which was launched January 1, 2011, should have 1.5 million objects (or nine of the 47 collections) processed by the end of the year, according to the Association of European Research Libraries blog. The project brings together national, research and university libraries under one umbrella, to make their materials available via Europeana.
