Only one week to go before the Europeana Network Association AGM: 8 to 9 November 2016 at the National Library of Latvia in Riga. Here is a quick recap of what you need to know before the event. It’s Riga, one of the Baltic gems; it’s the LNB, one of the most daring library buildings in the world; it’s November, bring a warm coat and it’s Europeana’s AGM. Have fun and share it via #AGM2016 #AllezCulture
