World Digital Library


A world digital library, officially going online today. Available in several languages and you can browse by place, topic or even by time period.

Lots of interesting information, I would say ...

Re: World Digital Library

Some further details on the site:

The library is put together by the American Library of Congress with the support of UNESCO, the cultural organisation of the United Nations.

The preparation took about 4 years (collection and digitalisation) and costed about 46 million Euro (sponsors were partners like Google, Apple and Microsoft).

The sources of the library are national archives and libraries from 32 countries. Seven languages are supported: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Chinese and Russian.
