UNESCO World Digital Library

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has recently launched the World Digital Library, which contains materials from the collections of 32 libraries and cultural institutions from around the world. The collection can be browsed by format, geographical area, time period, topic, and contributing institution. The WDL site provides all of its content in seven languages, including the item descriptions that place WDL materials in their cultural and historical contexts. The primary source materials that make up the collection, however, appear only in their original language of composition.

To explore the World Digital Library, visit www.wdl.org.
