The World Digital Library has launched and I’ve only been able to take a small moment exploring it. They offer fantastic primary resources from around the globe with high quality images, brilliant descriptions, and more. It’s an easy to use website with search and browse capabilities, giving it an interactive feel that makes one feel like they are navigating their way around the world. The timeline feauture below the world map is an amazing way to narrow or expand the number of items in a given time-frame.
As their resources grow I imagine that this will be a great go to place for writing research papers, educational opportunities, and for many a source for learning and expanding cultural knowledge.
