Press release:
Commission unveils plans for European digital libraries
The European Commission today unveiled its strategy to make Europeâ??s written 
and audiovisual heritage available on the Internet. Turning Europeâ??s historic 
and cultural heritage into digital content will make it usable for European

concerted drive by EU Member States to digitise, preserve, and make this 
heritage available to all. It presents a first set of actions at European level

for replies 20 January 2006). The replies will feed into a proposal for a 
Recommendation on digitisation and digital preservation, to be presented in 
June 2006. (...)
