The growth of digital collections offers huge opportunities to scholars, curators and anyone ready to mine these resources. The users’ experience in navigating the countless collections can be greatly enhanced by an integrated access via a digital platform such as Europeana. In this newsletter, we present the collections of our partners and recent work by the Judaica Europeana network in collaboration with other projects in the Europeana ecosystem.

21st century memory institutions face a common challenge: how best to perpetuate their traditional preservation functions in the dynamic technological environment of the information age. The Library’s digital preservation programmes utilize state-of-the-art technology in a facility that resembles a scene from a futuristic novel.
