One of UNESCOs main strategies consists in promoting access to information in the public domain in order to exploit the rich collective public property. The new communication and information technologies allow global access to this information.

This flagship project, which consists in the establishment of collections of digitized texts, will be made available on-line (on the Internet) and off-line (CD-ROMs). The access to both the on-line and the off-line products will be free-of-charge.
