A não perder a sessão de apresentação do projecto «Portuguese Culture» amanhã, pelas 16h00, na Sala de Projecções da Biblioteca Nacional, no Campo Pequeno.
«Portuguese Culture» is a special Digital Library Project undertaken by the National Library of Portugal with the financial support of FLAD, the Portuguese-American Development Foundation (Fundação Luso-Americana para o Desenvolvimento).
With this initiative both institutions recognize the importance of promoting the internationalization of Portuguese culture by making freely available on the Internet English translations of works by Portuguese authors and other works in English that deal with Portugal and aspects of the Portuguese culture.
The Project is developed as a special collection of the National Library of Portugal Digital Library planned to evolve gradually over a period of three years. Portuguese Culture Collection will encompass a variety of materials from the holdings of the National Library of Portugal (manuscripts, printed texts, iconography, cartography, etc.) covering not only works of historical interest that are in the public domain but also more recent content for which a copyright license could be granted.
You may browse the collection by Author, Title and Publication year.
