International Children's Digital Library

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Hundreds of full text children's books are now available on-line.

The International Children's Digital Library's collection is now available and open to patrons. Imagine full text books availble on line to download and read.

The International Children's Digital Library (ICDL) is a 5-year research project to develop innovative software and a collection of books that specifically address the needs of children as readers. Interdisciplinary researchers from computer science, library studies, education, art, and psychology are working together with children to design this new library. With participants from around the world, the ICDL is building an international collection that reflects both the diversity and quality of children's literature. Currently, the collection includes materials donated from 27 cultures in 15 languages.

Java reader or Acrobat ebook reader is necessary to read most books. By the summer of 2003 a low tech option will be available. The standard reader is designed for slower computers.

There are guides for kids and grownups. The design is simple graphics, but vibrant colors. One major benefit is the availability of international children's literature.
