Information for Caribbean
Development


*i- U-~ --- r





What is the CDL?
The Caribbean Digital Library is a
virtual collection of Caribbean
documents and other information
resources available on the World
Wide Web, organized for easy
retrieval under 27 broad subject
headings.

Vision and Concept
The CDL was conceived as a joint
venture. It sought to enlist the
cooperation of information specialists
in the region in the creation of an
online information resource. All
interested information and
documentation centres would
contribute and all would derive
considerable benefit. The CDL
would use the Web as an instrument
of Caribbean development.

Our vision was for the CDL to be
recognized as a primary,
authoritative, web-based source of
substantive intellectual work by
Caribbean people for the Caribbean
region.

Location
The web address of the CDL is
http://cdl.eclacpos.org

relevant documents and other resources in the
following broad subject areas:

Coordination
The CDL is co-ordinated by the
Caribbean Documentation Centre at
ECLAC. The Centre is assisted by the
CDL Consortium a fairly loose
grouping of organizations committed to
the growth and expansion of the Library.

CDL Update
Issued periodically, CDL Update, an
online newsletter circulated to users and
posted at the CDL site, informs users,
contributors, and other interested persons
of the growth, volume of usage, and
content of the Library.

User Reviews


"I am deeply indebted to the Carib-
bean Digital Library Project for
availing me of the opportunity to
access socio-economic data on the
Caribbean while pursuing my post-
graduate studies in Information
Technology and Management at
Lancaster Management and Busi-
ness School."

"I would like to compliment
ECLAC/ CDCC for this initiative
and for the good work that they are
doing in this area, which is a first
for the Caribbean region. This is a
system that I have very often re-
ferred to and similarly have re-
ferred others to it. It has proven to
be a very valuable tool.

"I am very impressed that you have
built a consortium of members that
contribute to the library.
