Ślesin – Families from the same small town
Europeana is one of the largest European digital libraries. Its main mission is the preservation and dissemination of European cultural heritage through making it available in digital format. Its resources include collections from the largest and most prominent European libraries, archives and museums.
Creating the Europeana database became possible through the cooperation of organizations all over Europe. The project is being constantly developed, the databases continuously expand and new partners keep joining in.
As of May this year, part of the collection belonging to the Central Jewish Library (a digital library containing archives, documents, press and books belonging to the JHI) has become available in the Europeana database thanks to the cooperation between the two institutions.
