World Digital Library

In the World Digital Library, a coalition of national libraries and UNESCO have put some of humanity’s earliest written works online Tuesday, “not to compete with Google or Wikipedia but to pique young readers’ interest — and get them reading books.” They reportedly include ancient Chinese oracle bones and the first European map of the New World. See the Associated Press story.
