It’s Here! The New & Improved Europeana

After weeks of testing, 3 surveys and countless feedback from you all – we’re now excited to announce the launch of the new and improved Europeana. One of the biggest improvements that you’ve probably heard us raving about is that the new portal is responsive, meaning it now automatically adapts to a range of different devices and screen sizes. So whether you’re using a touch screen smartphone or a large desktop, the portal will tailor its presentation so it always looks great.

Another neat improvement is to do with the automatic suggestions that pop up as you type your search query. This means it’s now easier and faster to search Europeana because we’ll predict what you’re looking for and make recommendations based on that, before you’ve even finished typing. We’ve made changes so that it’s easier for you to identify Europeana’s treasures and get on with exploring them. Together with those improvements, the new homepage includes a stronger focus on our curated content, with a bigger image slideshow, a featured partner section and a carousel highlighting our latest pins on Pinterest.

So, what are you waiting for? Check out the new portal and give it a whirl – let us know what you think!
