      Wellcome Library's medical collection goes digital in Egypt
      24 Hour Museum [UK], 15/09/2008

      A pioneering new partnership between the Wellcome Library in London and
      Egypt's Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA) will help reveal the story of early
      medicine in the Eastern world and enable rare materials to be
      universally accessible for the first time. The Wellcome Library will be
      making items available from its collection of rare materials relating to
      both Ancient and Modern Egypt in digital form to BA for the first time.
      These items will eventually become part of BA's own online library and
      will also feature in the World Digital Library, a portal to cultural
      content worldwide. The material from the Wellcome Library consists of
      visual, documentary, manuscript and printed material in several
      languages and will enhance BA's current resources.
