The creation of a Wide Area Archive & Library (WAAL)

The archive & library consists of digital documents representing all kinds of information from text (in the first stages of the project) to images and sound (in the future).

The world is boiling, history unfolds its dramatic changes in full colour on TV and in full text in electronic bulletins. History seems to be present through an index of messages, statements and reports from our global electronic village reporting day by day its cascade of events. The linking of NGO news services and bulletins on NGO mailbox networks is a global platform to report and comment the daily reality of people and a critical addition to existing news media.
