== Press text:

The EUscreen collection includes thousands of items. To help users get
the most from the EUscreen material, researchers, experts and members
of its partner broadcasters and audiovisual archives have created a
series of online exhibitions. These exhibitions cover historical
events, political debates and everyday life in Europe.

The current release, visible at
http://www.euscreen.eu/exhibitions.html, brings online 10 different
exhibitions, some of which are divided into subchapters or strands.
The exhibitions are created by archivists, researchers, and

Johan Oomen, EUscreen Technical Director: These inter-archival
exhibitions add new meaning to a wonderful collection of unique
television materials and make them accessible to a different and
larger audience; soon, visitors will be able to create their own
stories and add more connections between the richness of 60 years of
television history in Europe.

Expert knowledge and a fascinating range of materials combine to offer
exciting exhibitions on a wide range of subjects. A fine example of
such an exhibition is the exhibition Being European, which brings
together source materials from providers across the continent and is
divided in multiple strands that showcase what European culture and
identity may signify.

The tools designed for these exhibitions allow for the insertion of
multimedia materials from all the project’s content providers and link
back to the original items on the site, where users can find out more
about them, share the links or get in touch with the providers
themselves. Many more exhibitions will become available over the next
couple of months and EUscreen is working hard to get the tools ready
for everyone to start creating their own exhibitions.
