AP journalist Brett Zongker has brought to our attention that the World Digital Library (WDL) actively continues to expand. With the latest additions of manuscripts from the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, the collection has surpassed the milestone of 10,000 digital items.
The reason we take special note of the WDL—that is, besides how cool it is!— is that DDC is part of the WDL metadata. Every item is assigned at least one three-digit Dewey number, and while the numbers are hidden, the captions from the Dewey summaries appear as topics—in seven languages.
