World Digital Library

Leave a comment

It has taken me some time to catch up with developments at the World Digital Library (WDL). I missed this blog post from Lucinda Byatt‘s World of Words but did visit the WDL website.

From the WDL website:

The World Digital Library will launch on April 21, 2009. … and will make available on the Internet, free of charge and in multilingual format, significant primary materials from cultures around the world, including manuscripts, maps, rare books, musical scores, recordings, films, prints, photographs, architectural drawings, and other significant cultural materials. The objectives of the World Digital Library are to promote international and inter-cultural understanding and awareness, provide resources to educators, expand non-English and non-Western content on the Internet, and to contribute to scholarly research.

I used Vodpod to import a WDL introduction video:

Vodpod videos no longer available.
