  1. 1. no·ta be·ne News from the Yale Library volume xxiv, number 2, fall 2009 Yale Contributes to the World Digital Library Yale University Library joined with UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), the Library of Congress, and approximately 40 international institutions in Paris in April 2009 to launch the World Digital Library (WDL), a web site that features unique cultural materials from libraries and archives around the world. The site,, aims to provide free, unrestricted public access to manuscripts, maps, rare books, films, sound recordings, prints, photographs and other cultural heritage materials in digital format. The part- nership will grow rapidly in content and with new library partners. Yale has contributed a number of important works in the pilot phase, including 22 pencil drawings of the Amistad slave ship prisoners, ca. 1839–40; William Clark’s 1810 map of North America; an Arabic calligraphy primer, ca. 1852–53; and one of three manuscript copies of Ferdinand Magellan’s journal from his voyage around the world in 1522. As the project expands, more content will be added from digital collections across the University, reflecting the international strength of Yale’s holdings. The launch took place at UNESCO’s headquarters, co-hosted by UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura and Librarian Pencil sketch of Kimbo, one of the Amistad Prisoners, by William H.
