Launching today in Paris, UNESCO’s new library will become the world’s third major digital library, behind Google’s Book Search and the EU’s Europeana.
The WDLwill function in seven primary languages - Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
The library is the product of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and 32 partner institutions. Quelle collaboration!
LOC Director James Billington will co-chair the launch event alongside UNESCO director general Koichiro Matsuura on Monday.
