Serageldin has been re-elected as Chairman of the Executive Council of the World Digital Library (WDL) for another five years.

The Executive Council provides leadership to the WDL in keeping up with its goals to expand multilingual and culturally diverse content on the Internet, to provide resources to educators, contribute to scholarly research and to build knowledge and capacity in the developing world in order to narrow the “digital divide”.


Launched in April 2009, the WDL is a website that features cultural material from libraries and archives from around the world. It was developed by a team at the Library of Congress and technical assistance was provided by the BA as one of the WDL key partners and a major contributor of digitized content. The project aims to promote the free flow of knowledge.
