ICUDL 2008 “Towards Ten Million Books – Multimedia & Monuments” is the fourth in a series of International Conferences on Universal Digital Library. The conference aims further develop the Universal Digital Library (UDL) that will be a portal to foster creativity and free access to all human knowledge, discussing innovative issues and challenges involved in digitization in areas other than books, including various technological usage and new developments. The Million Book Project (MBP) is considered the first milestone towards building this digital library with a free-to-read, searchable collection of one million books in various languages belonging to diversified cultures and civilizations available to people worldwide over the Internet.
ICUDL 2007 “Legal, policy, technical, commercial and human factor challenges to a globally owned universal digital library” is the third in a series of International Conferences on the Universal Digital Library. The conference will add to the foundational knowledge of the Universal Digital Library (UDL) that will be a portal to foster creativity and free access to all human knowledge. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the Million Book Project (MBP) is considered a first milestone towards building this digital library with a free-to-read, searchable collection of one million books in various languages belonging to diversified cultures and civilizations available to people worldwide over the Internet. The annual workshop for the MBP will thus be held in conjunction with the conference – program notes
