World Digital Library Reaches Milestone as 10,000 Items Now Accessible

Crosses Threshold With Rare Collection from Baltimore’s Walters Art Museum

The World Digital Library (www.wdl.org), a collaborative international project led by the Library of Congress, now includes more than 10,000 manuscripts, maps and atlases, books, prints and photographs, films, sound recordings, and other cultural treasures. The 10,000-item milestone was reached earlier today with the addition of a set of priceless manuscripts from the Walters Art Museum of Baltimore, Maryland, a WDL partner since 2010.

The latest contributions include an early 16th-century Gospel manuscript from Ethiopia, written in Amharic and in Geez, the ancient liturgical language of Ethiopia (www.wdl.org/13019); a manuscript containing a richly illuminated Ottonian Gospel book fragment believed to have been made at the monastery of Corvey in western Germany during the mid-to-late 10th century (www.wdl.org/13017); and a menologion, or church calendar, in Greek, created in Byzantium circa 1025-1041 (www.wdl.org/13008)…
