We first came across The World Digital Library (WDL) whilst in Qatar. The WDL makes significant primary materials from countries, and cultures around the world, available on the Internet, free of charge, in many languages.
These cultural treasures include manuscripts, maps, prints, rare books, musical scores, recordings, films, photographs, and architectural drawings, from across the globe.
It is possible to browse by place, time, topic, type of item, and contributing institution, or can be located by an open-ended search, in English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. A world of resources.
