Evaluation of digital libraries assesses their effectiveness, quality and overall impact. In this paper we describe a qualitative evaluation of The European Library carried out by six highly qualified evaluators from the area of computer and library science. The findings -mainly usability issues- are presented along the ITF model and suggestions are given to overcome these findings.
