Newsflashes

We are pleased to announce that the United Nations Digital Library (UNDL) is now available and can be accessed globally free of charge.  A result of the successful collaboration between the Dag Hammarskjöld Library (DHL) at UN Headquarters and the United Nations Office at Geneva Library, the platform uses innovative open source technology to provide access to UN-produced materials in digital format. Content will be added continuously and enhancements to the system will be rolled out on a regular basis. The new system, which offers easy access to UN documents, maps, speeches, voting data, as well as non-sales publications, will help global researchers find the UN information they need, quickly and accurately. It provides one point of access to UN information – current and historical.

Phase 1 of the UNDL incorporates digital content from the databases in UNBISnet and the Official Document System (ODS) - mainly official UN documents, speech and voting records, as well as some maps.  The UNDL will also link to open access UN content.

TheDayWeFightBackFeb11 2014Increased Internet censorship and surveillance has been an emerging trend over the last decade. Since 2013’s leaks regarding online spying by various security agencies, the global dimensions and potential of ubiquitous surveillance have become evident to the global public. The IFLA FAIFE Committee has been actively working for many years to raise the issue of privacy and surveillance in a library context and now highlights some initiatives to support citizens’ rights.

No-one can visit all the museums, libraries and archives across Europe in person. But we all can online. How we do that is up to you. In the future, how do you imagine you will help others explore, discover, learn about, work with and play with Europe’s heritage online? Whatever your dream, share it with us and together we can make it happen. We’ve already heard from six big dreamers. Watch their videos, share them and then share your own dream too.

Let’s think big together. Allez Culture!

Diane Peters said on November 25th, 2013:

"We proudly introduce our 4.0 licenses, now available for adoption worldwide. The 4.0 licenses — more than two years in the making — are the most global, legally robust licenses produced by CC to date. We have incorporated dozens of improvements that make sharing and reusing CC-licensed materials easier and more dependable than ever before.

Europeana has reached another milestone towards 2015: 5 years of existance and 30 milion resources.
Europeana aggregates the digital collections of roughly 2.300 galleries, libraries, museums, and archives providing an API for the needs of those who want to expoit this rich content.
The best moment is to be considered the release of the dataset under CC0 dedication last year and most of all the good influence it has over the Digital Public Library of America.

They say we are entering the era of open science.

I've said that, too. But in fact it is only partly true. Because in reality, science has always been inherently open.
