Description of activities
A group of 17 European partner institutions, including University Library “Svetozar Marković”, have joined forces in the “Europeana Newspapers” project and will, over the next 3 years, provide more than 10 million newspaper pages to the Europeana service. The Europeana Newspapers project (funded under EC's CIP 2007 - 2013) aims at the aggregation and refinement of newspapers for The European Library and Europeana. In addition, the project addresses challenges particularly linked with digitized newspapers:
Libraries participating in the project will distribute digitized newspapers and full-texts free of any legal restrictions to Europeana. There will be a special focus on newspapers published during the First World War, thus providing a meaningful addition to the resources aggregated by the current Europeana Collections 1914-1918 project.
