Europeana Migration is a new online exhibit that documents the history of migration "to, from, and within Europe." The collection, which currently contains 200,000 items, is part of the European Commission's European Year of Cultural Heritage. As explained on this website, "Europeana will run a series of collection days and events involving museums, libraries, archives and audiovisual collections across Europe that specialise in or are interested in the theme of migration." As of this write-up, visitors can explore this growing collection in a few different ways. The exhibit currently features a Famous Migrants Gallery, which features portraits, photographs, and sculptures of famous Europeans including Camille Pissarro and Frederic Chopin. Visitors can browse items in this collection by format (text, image, video) and filter results by language. Alternatively, visitors can conduct a keyword search on the site's homepage. Readers are also invited to share their own migration histories in the stories section.
