Today’s website is The World Digital Library A.K.A W.D.L. The website makes primary materials from countries and cultures available on the Internet, free of charge and in multiple languages from around the world. These cultural treasures include, but are not limited to, manuscripts, maps, rare books, musical scores, recordings, films, prints, photographs, and architectural drawings.
Items on the WDL may easily be browsed by place, time, topic, type of item, and institution, or can be located by an searchn in the top right. Special features include a timeline and image-viewing . Item-level descriptions and interviews with curators about featured items add more information.
The WDL was developed by a team at the U.S. Library of Congress.
