      *EU - Opening soon: a digital library for Europe
      <http://www.qlinks.net/update/2008/08/eu-opening-soon-digital-library-for.htm>*

(RAPID)
Europe's cultural diversity in books, music, paintings, photographs, and 
films open to all citizens at the click of a mouse via one portal - this 
dream of a European Digital Library could become reality this autumn. 
However, further efforts by the EU Member States are needed, said the 
Commission in a new Communication on making available digital versions 
of works from cultural institutions all over Europe. Digitisation of 
cultural works can give Europeans access to material from museums, 
libraries and archives abroad without having to travel or turn hundreds 
of pages to find a piece of information. Europe's libraries alone 
contain more than 2.5 billion books, but only about 1% of archival 
material is available in digital form. The Commission therefore called 
on Member States to do more to make digitised works available online for 
Europeans to browse them digitally, for study, work or leisure. The 
Commission itself will provide some € 120 million in 2009-2010 for 
improving online access to Europe's cultural heritage. see Communication
