Europeana is best described as a multimedia gateway or portal to all sorts of European digital collections. You can look for images, music, video, books and more, all digitised and uploaded from different libraries, museums and other initiatives.
Folk music, photography, recording technology and first world war archival material are just a few of the subjects covered. There's a lot about field recording Irish traditional music, and the Irish Traditional Music Archive.
Right now there's an experimental portal for music, and Europeana wants feedback. So make yourself a coffee, and do spend a few minutes exploring. Your feedback is encouraged and welcomed. Anyone can respond, with institutional comments particularly welcome, so if you lead a course or department, please do make the most of this pilot phase.
