About the World Digital Library
The World Digital Library is a cooperative project of the Library of Congress, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and partner libraries, archives, and educational and cultural institutions from the United States and around the world. The project brings together on a single website rare and unique documents – books, journals, manuscripts, maps, prints and photographs, films, and sound recordings – that tell the story of the world’s cultures. The site is intended for general users, students, teachers, and scholars.
The WDL interface operates in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. The actual documents on the site are presented in their original languages.
Other international resources from the Library:
- Global Gateway: Multilingual resources on world culture from the Library of Congress
- Global Resources: The scale and depth of the Library's international collections
- Portals to the World: Electronic resources on the nations of the world selected by Library of Congress subject experts
