For many in lockdown, you may be looking for reading material. So why not take the time to get to know the World Digital Library, a project of the U.S. Library of Congress, carried out with the support of UNESCO.

The WDL makes available on the Internet, free of charge and in multilingual format, thousands of books, documents and photos from all countries and cultures. Working in cooperation with libraries, archives, museums, educational institutions, and international organizations from around the world, the principal objectives of the WDL are to:

  • Promote international and intercultural understanding;
  • Expand the volume and variety of cultural content on the Internet;
  • Provide resources for educators, scholars, and general audiences;
  • Build capacity in partner institutions to narrow the digital divide within and between countries.
