Europeana is Europe's digital platform for cultural heritage, providing free online access to over 54 million digitised items drawn from cultural institutions across Europe. Our huge collection is available in multiple languages and media, and ranges from books, photos and paintings to television broadcasts and 3D objects. This guide introduces the basic principles of searching for and using Europeana’s content in education. It covers topics like copyright and licenses that allow educational reuse, and how you should credit Europeana content when you use it. It also gives an introduction to the Europeana APIs. It is of use to educators across all subjects, students and lifelong learners, developers of educational resources and educational publishers.
