Albawaba Business: CLIR Releases a Prototype Proof of Concept for the Digital Library of the Middle East

Albawaba Business: CLIR Releases a Prototype Proof of Concept for the Digital Library of the Middle East. “Created with funding from the Whiting Foundation, the current prototype includes some 135,000 objects. The DLME will ultimately encompass text, video, photographs, archives, manuscripts, 3-D data, and maps illuminating the region’s history over 12 millennia, curated by scholars, specialists, and members of the living and vital cultures it represents. The platform, developed by Stanford Libraries, allows for the display of information in Romanized or Arabic forms.”
