I may have already blogged about this, but it is so neat that I have to do it again. The European Library website allows you to search over 150 million entries in thirty different national libraries, for books, posters, maps, sound recordings, video, etc.). The thirty libraries are Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.

You can search the entire list; just maps, atlases and cartography; photographs, posters and images; portraits; children’s literature; digitized books; newspapers and periodicals; manuscripts; music collections; religion; scientific articles; thesis and dissertations; or collections from just one country.

What a wonderful resource!
