  Soon, a European Digital Library? The European Digital Library has just been lauched, or at least the 5-year process which will allow to digitise 6 million books currently in archive in many European libraries.

Already 16 European countries, both inside and outside the EU, have designate dtheir participating library: Austria, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Netherlands, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia, Switzerland and the UK, along with Italy (through ICCU) and CENL (Conference of European National Libraries).
Later on, some 30 other libraries will join the process.
