Biblioteca Digitala Universala / World Digital Library

Am gasit navigand pe Internet un portal foarte interesant: World Digital Library (Biblioteca Digitala Universala), care reprezinta o initiativa a Natiunilor Unite.

Portalul poate fi accesat gratuit in oricare dintre limbile oficiale ale Natiunilor Unite, araba, chineza, engleza, franceza, rusa si spaniola, si contine in acest moment o colectie de 172 carti, 54 jurnale, 149 manuscrise, 307 harti, 11 inregistrari video,  600 tiparituri si fotografii si 5 inregistrari audio.

La cautari apare si Romania cu o harta din 1887 a Deltei Dunarii, cu un album de calatorie din perioada 1840 - 1842 al unor francezi, cu "Cartea de duminica" scrisa de Sofronii Vrachanski, episcopul bulgar de Vratsa, si publicata la Ramnicu Sarat in 1806, si cu cartea "Haiducii bulgari" scrisa de Georgi Rakovski, un faimos revolutionar bulgar, carte publicata la Bucuresti in 1867.

Pe mine cel mai mult m-a bucurat colectia lui Esop de fabule :)


Browsing the Internet I found a very interesting portal: World Digital Library, which represent an initiative of the United Nations.

The portal can be accessed free-of-charge in any of the official languages of the United Nations: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish, and it contains at this moment a collection of 172 books, 54 journals, 149 manuscripts, 307 maps, 11 motion pictures, 600 prints and photographs, and 5 sound recordings.

I did a search on "Romania" and I discovered a map of Danube Delta from 1887, an album of journey authored by four Frenchmen during the period 1840-1842, the "Sunday Book" of Sofronii Vrachanski, Bulgarian Bishop of Vratsa, published in Ramnicu Sarat in 1806, and the book "Bulgarian Haiduts" written by Georgi Rakovski, a famous Bulgarian revolutionary, published in Bucharest in 1867.

I was very happy to find also the complete collection of Aesop's Fables :)
