Results of a study on users’ expectations for the Europeana Regia website

The article, published in the latest edition of the Bulletin des Bibliothèques de France, outlines the scope and results of the study on users’ requirements and expectations with regards to the Europeana Regia website. Conducted in several stages from May to November 2010, the study focussed on three groups of potential users – researchers, secondary school teachers and the general public – to determine what use they might make of this digitised content and what specific needs and expectations they might have when consulting it.
