  This is the Europeana project.
  
Initiated by the European Commission and based at first on the European Library. 
.
  “Europeana.eu is a collaboration between universities, research institutes and content providers. The site is a prototype, and in the coming year we will be developing it in response to users’ feedback and making it operational.” ref.
.
An interesting article from Rob Davies, her Director, MDR and Scientific Co-ordinator of EuropeanaLocal, has the title of “Europeana: An Infrastructure for Adding Local Content” and there he explains very good many important aspects of the project and how is possible to overcome the difficulties involved in it, the steps to undertake and the goals that they think meet in the coming years. Well as technical problems and how to solve them.
