A Project started by the UNESCO in 1992. The Goal is to make Nations aware of the "treasures" in their archives and to create digital technology to store them and to make them available over the Internet. It is quite similar to Project Gutenberg, only it includes archives on music, movies, and technical and science data. Over a hundred archives that should be saved are listed on the Unesco homepage.

On www.unesco.org/webworld/mdm/ you can read about the projects and the nominations. Everyone can nominate new data for the Memory of the World.
