Europeana website redesigned

An announcement from Europeana (www.europeana.com):

See what Europeana items your friends like or share on Facebook, check out our latest blog posts, and discover some of the most interesting content on the new Europeana portal.

Based on users' feedback we've been receiving since our launch in November 2008, Europeana underwent a significant makeover. The redesigned Europeana that went live today is now more visual and easier to use. You can quickly navigate through our diverse collections, learn more with our featured and curated content, and interact with others through various channels.

"The portal redesign is part of a long process, in which we have tried to incorporate the most important points, that were consistently made by our users, into our design principles for Europeana", said Harry Verwayen, Europeana's Business Development Director.

Here are some of the new things you can do on Europeana:

* You can easily find our latest virtual exhibitions, content highlights and Europeana initiatives on the image carousel, the "Featured item" section or in the top navigation link "Explore".
* You can translate information about an item into your language with the translate function.
* You can copy your favourite item to your site with the embed function.
* You can quickly find ways to interact with other users through our blog, Facebook
page, or Europeana Remix.

Visit Europeana and experience for yourself!

(With thanks to Europeana)
