It is here and it has launched today. The European Library or Europeana as it is called, is free to use and opens up a world of digital resources bought together by a number of European countries, as the name suggests.
However, not wanting to put a dampner on the whole thing, but I was trying to access it today and the server was down. I was not a happy information bunny =:( But on a positive note, it could be down due to so many people trying to access it and it's capacity being surpassed. If this is the case then it is great that it has generated so much interest. =:) Happy info bunny again.
