Mexico launches digital library
"Mexico has joined a world online library project, with the launch Wednesday of its Mexican Digital Library. The library, launched by president of the state-run National Culture and Arts Council Consuelo Saizar, will make historic texts available in eight languages to participants worldwide under the World Digital Library project, which is being promoted by the U.S. Library of Congress. Mexico's contribution to this program includes key codices, published in the pictorial script used in the nation before Spanish colonists arrived in the 16th Century: the Colombian Codice, Testeriano Catechism, the Marquesado del Valle Codice and the Totomixtlahuac Codice"
