Redesigned Europeana Launched

13 October 2011 – Yesterday, Europeana, Europe’s digital library, museum and archive, launched a redesign with new functionalities. The new interface has more visual appeal and has been adapted for iPads and Android touchscreens, bringing all the benefits of touch to Europe’s online treasury.   Europeana’s makeover has been shaped by users, who have helped to create the services they wanted around their cultural heritage. One request was made above all:  the right to download for free and re-use the cultural highlights they find on the site. For the first time, Europeana makes it possible to narrow searches ‘by copyright’ so that public domain – out of copyright – content can be precisely targeted.  Read the full press release here.
