The project of digitalization of historical documents in cooperation with Google

The National Library of the Czech Republic and Google Inc. started a several-year long project of digitalization of historical documents in the beginning of 2011. In the end, about 200.000 old prints and prints of the 19th century will be digitalized. From the Slavonic Library, primarily documents published between 1800–1870 have been included into the project. These are mostly historically-valued collections of Russian, Polish and Yugoslav origin. We suppose most of A. F. Smirdin’s library, Milan Resetar’s collection on Dubrovnik, large Polish book collections of Tomasz Ruśkiewicz, Eugeniusz Barwiński will be amongst those documents that will become digitally accessible.
