Europeana Libraries highlights



Europeana Libraries has produced a lovely video to highlight a selection of the more than 5 million objects which the project will put online in the coming 2 years. The clip reveals the great variety of objects, ranging from ancient manuscripts to printings, photographs and films about the history of medicine.
Europeana Libraries will bring the digital collections of 19 of Europe's leading research libraries to Europeana and The European Library. The content will include:
• 1,200 film and video clips
• 850,000 images
• 4.3 million texts (books, journal articles, theses, letters)
The Wellcome Library will be contributing images and films in the area of the history of science and medicine. The iconic flea image from our copy of Robert Hooke’s Micrographia can be seen 23 seconds into this short video.
