Digital libraries are the result of the development of computer and information systems and the evolution of the traditional library through the past half century. The emergence of computers in the mid-sixties represents a new paradigm of development and the beginning of the automation of library management. Further development of computer technology made it possible to store library materials in digital form and create a large number of digital libraries. The importance of digital libraries has been recognized at the national level. This paper provides an overview of digital collections as part of the national libraries of 28 countries of the European Union and their current and planned projects related to the organization of digital resources. A set of criteria was chosen by which 17 existing national digital libraries have been compared, with special attention given to user interfaces. Croatia does not have a national digital library; it currently exists only as a concept in the documents of strategic development of the National Library. As the youngest member of the EU, Croatia can find lots of positive and negative examples and learn from the experiences of other members. Once created, the Croatian national digital library will serve as a representative part of the identity of the state.
