It is with great pleasure I can inform you that Europeana has started a blog. The blog is maintained by a group of employees.
At the moment you can find among others a post about a crowdsourcing project of Europeana (funder) plus partners. The project partners ask visitors to add any material they may have concerning the First World War. They can do so at the online archive on www.europeana1914-1918.eu.
At the project website it is explained that “The First World War archive is based on an initiative at the University of Oxford where people across Britain were asked to bring family letters, photographs and keepsakes from the War to be digitised. The success of the idea – which became the Great War Archive – has encouraged Europeana, Europe’s digital archive, library and museum, to bring the German National Library into an alliance with Oxford University to roll out the scheme in Germany. The collaboration will bring German stories online alongside their British counterparts in a 1914-18 archive.”
