World Digital Library
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.
WDL is a valuable social studies resource – one that will help students of higher grades better understand the history and culture of various regions of the world.
