UNESCO and Library of Congress sign agreement for World Digital Library

UNESCO and the US Library of Congress will join forces to build a World
Digital Library, following the signing of an agreement by Abdul Waheed
Khan, UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Communication and
Information, and the Librarian of Congress James H. Billington, at
UNESCO Headquarters in Paris on 17 October, 2007.

The World Digital Library initiative has been designed to promote
international and inter-cultural understanding, increase the quality and
diversity of cultural content on the internet, and contribute to
education and scholarship. Individuals and institutions in more than 40
countries and the IFLA have participated in working groups and expert
meetings to plan the World Digital Library.

“Libraries are key actors for ensuring universal access to information
and building knowledge societies,” said UNESCO Director-General,
Koïchiro Matsuura. “We are very pleased to build on the excellent
partnership that we have long enjoyed with the Library of Congress to
work in innovative ways to preserve and make accessible the memory of
the world.”
