Highlight example

Afghanistan Digital Library

New York University’s Afghanistan Digital Library retrieves and restores materials published in Afghanistan that are in danger of disappearing. The objective of the project was to collect, catalogue, digitize and provide access to as many publications as possible in an effort to reconstruct an essential part of Afghanistan's cultural heritage. "Afghan scholars are enormously excited about The Afghanistan Digital Library as this is material that don't have access to currently," says Dr. Michael Stoller, the project manager of ADL and Director of Collection and Research Services at New York University.
