Digital Library Program Update

December 21st, 2011 § 1 comment

On December 16, the Digital Library Program held an update on our activities and new technical framework.  You can now look at the slides from the presentation:   Digital Library Update.

During the presentation, we showed a Google map with photos from our digital library collection geotagged.  You can see this in Google Maps.  This is an example of the kind of new interface and use of our data that will be possible with our new framework.

§ One Response to Digital Library Program Update

    Dear Sirs,

    I am an Orthodox Christian woman, 58 years old who discovered the beauty of manuscripts and I am doing research for private use only.

    After my mastectomy it became a relaxation time for me.

    I do not understand your policy concerning images.Why you do not allow public to download images for private use?

    An institution such as yours should have respect for open knowledge and sharing.

    All these manuscripts should be in a public domain and your attitude is utterly distressing and disappointing!

    Please reply.

    Regards,

    NB. German libraries responed very kindly to my mail.
