Review of World Digital Library

by Baker, Christine

Abstract

Christine Baker reviews the World Digital Library. The Library of Congress introduced the concept of “an Internet-based, easily-accessible collection of the world’s cultural riches that would tell the stories and highlight the achievements of all countries and cultures, thereby promoting cross-cultural awareness and understanding.” This was presented to the U.S. National Commission for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The end result is the freely-available World Digital Library (WDL) launched in April of 2009, a highly educational and culturally rich resource for “educators, scholars, and general audiences.”
