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.
