Europeana metadata with a CC0 license

The Europeana portal has released metadata for 20 million cultural objects using a Creative Commons CC0 license. This bold move means that everyone is free to reuse the metadata that describes and references digital cultural heritage accessible online from European museums, libraries and archives, including the Icelandic National and University Library.
