World Digital Library

A new international cultural resource has opened its virtual doors.  In April, the Library of Congress, UNESCO, and other partner institutions launched the World Digital Library.  These partners are contributing digitized content from their collections to the World Digital Library. All content is included on a nonexclusive basis.

The project brings together on a single website rare and unique documents – books, journals, manuscripts, maps, prints and photographs, films, and sound recordings – that tell the story of the world’s cultures (Library of Congress).

You can search and browse features in seven languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish) and the content itself will be in more than two-dozen languages.  Explore the collection by borwsing Place, Time, Topic, Type of Item, or Institution and learn about our world.
