Top 10 most viewed Europeana objects for September

In September, we can see in Europeana statistics that work and school starts again: we see more itemns viewed during office and school hours. In the summer usage is spread more evenly over the day and evening. Always interesting to see if that change in usage purpose (work, education in stead of pleasure) leads to a change in the most viewed objects. So here are the top 10 most viewed objects from Europeana in the month of September:

1. Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer is still our proud number 1:
