We’ve known for a while that our collections website was due for an upgrade, and we’re finally ready to show you what we’ve been working on for the past few months. We’ve developed a demo of an updated Europeana website that is faster, easier to explore, and more accessible. We are excited to be sharing this with you. The final design has not yet been applied, but the demo will give you a good sense of what is coming and give you the chance to provide feedback.
