The web is full of interesting facts, figures, famous personalities, and places of interest, historical events and exploration spanning time from the historical to the present. Since the digital age began, digital collections have existed. From the first scanned book to the first download of family photos, digital objects have been organized, categorized, and classified to create like sets of materials. The creation of a digital collection is often the result of a person's or organization's desire to show off both what they have, as well as the fact that they can do it. The purpose of this book is to bring these worldwide digital collections together. Each digital collection discussed will be accompanied by details of the scope of the site and the intent of the creator. The questions that guide the format for this book are: What is the subject matter of the digitization project? What institution, organization, library, museum or other host is making this valuable information available to the world? Who will benefit from these digitized collections? Entries will include the most current web address and contact information if available. The book is organized geographically by continent, then alphabetically by country within. Anyone, whether it is a researcher, scientist, teacher or student, or even a person simply interested in the topic, will find the collections interesting, informative, and of value to their own particular needs.
