International Children's Digital Library
The International Children's Digital Library (ICDL) is a five-year project funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to create a digital library of international children's books. Hosted by the University of Maryland, the materials included in the collection reflect similarities and differences in cultures, societies, interests, lifestyles, and priorities of peoples around the world. The collection's focus is on identifying materials that help children to understand the world around them and the global society in which they live. The collection has two primary audiences: children ages 3-13, as well as librarians, teachers, parents, and caregivers, who work with children of these ages; and international scholars and researchers in the area of children's literature.
