World Digital Library: Your Portal to Digitial Cultural Artifacts and More

world_dig_lib_logo.pngToday I discovered the World Digital Library. The mission of this site is to create a centralized place where you can access digital items and artifacts from different times, cultures, and parts of the world and to raise awareness and understanding across cultures. Some of the items that you can view are maps, stories, images, rare books, music, films, recordings, prints, and photographs. You can view the site in several different languages, like Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, and Russia. When you click on an item, you get a brief description of it, when it was created, the creator (and/or who financed the item, like a painting), the place, topics, and other related items. It’s a great knowledge of wealth to use in the classroom, personal studies, or personal interest. To learn more, you can visit the site by clicking on the link below:
