This paper describes a system for navigat- ing large collections of information about cultural heritage which is applied to Eu- ropeana, the European Library. Euro- peana contains over 20 million artefacts with meta-data in a wide range of Euro- pean languages. The system currently pro- vides access to Europeana content with meta-data in English and Spanish. The pa- per describes how Natural Language Pro- cessing is used to enrich and organise this meta-data to assist navigation through Eu- ropeana and shows how this information is used within the system.
