Background of the project (problems/target groups/challenges to be addressed)

Europeana (europeana.eu) is the most visible representation of European cultural heritage online. After four years of innovative work since the portal was launched at the end of 2008, Europeana now gives access to a European treasury of 28 million books, pictures, films, maps, archival records, museum objects and sound recordings from over 2,200 of Europe’s memory institutions.


Brief History of the Project

Europeana, the pan-European digital library, enables people to explore the digital resources of Europe's museums, libraries, archives and audio-visual collections. Unfortunately, the references available today to Europeana for the cross border area of Greece and Albania are very limited and this can be proved by a simple use of search terms like Konitsa, Ioannina, Epirus, Gjirokaster, Korca, etc. Despite numerous projects that has been implemented in Epirus, the majority of the digital collections are not connected to Europeana and to the world. Albania, from the other side, is not yet participating actively to Europeana and European initiatives for digitalization of its valuable heritage.
