European History Primary Sources

European History Primary Sources (EHPS) is an index of websites that offer access to digitised primary sources and born-digital sources on the history of Europe. European History Primary Sources (EHPS) is a joint initiative of the Library and the Department of History and Civilization of the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. It is also part of the WWW Virtual Library History Central Catalogue that is hosted at the EUI. 

The purpose of EHPS is to provide historians with an easily searchable index of scholarly websites that offer online access to digitised primary sources, invented archives and born digital sources relating to the history of Europe. As the number of digital archives and collections on the internet continues to grow, maintaining an overview becomes increasingly difficult. EHPS strives to fill that gap by listing the most important collections of digital primary sources for the history of Europe, either as a whole or for individual countries. EHPS is updated continuously and we invite all users to send us their suggestions for websites to include.

I built EHPS in 2008 and was involved as technical maintainer until mid-2014.
