Europeana Regia Presented at Two International Conferences

In March, Europeana Regia was presented in Paris at the international seminar “The Message of the Old Book in the New Environment”, organized by the Finnish Research Library Association and the Institut Finlandais en France during the 2011 Paris Book Fair (18-19 March 2011). Following a general overview of the project, this presentation focused mainly on the development of the Europeana Regia website, where it will be possible to consult the manuscripts in the context of their historical collections through a multilingual interface.
