What CDL contains
Czech Digital Library (CDL) contains metadata continuously harvested from digital libraries operated in the Czech Republic.
Documents in full view are stored in the source / original digital libraries from which they are at the user’s request dynamically downloaded to the web interface of the Czech Digital Library. The user can therefore enjoy hundreds of thousands of digitized documents from all libraries involved in the CDL and work with them in one intuitive interface.
There is a large number of documents available, namely:
- Digitized books
- newspapers and magazines
- manuscripts and old prints
- archival material
- and audio documents and recordings
Availability of documents is determined and controlled by source / original digital libraries and is subjected to copyright law. The law allows the online publication of works 70 years after the death of all authors and 50 years after the original publication of the work.
