Alexandria’s Library

The Library of Alexandria was one of the wonders of the ancient world. Egypt has now rebuilt the library as the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, housed in a new complex in Alexandria. The Web site includes a history of the ancient library, a photo tour of the new facility, links to archaeological investigations of Alexandria, and other material. Focusing on digital preservation, the library also has an online repository of information, including an Internet archive where researchers can surf Web sites as they used to be. Requires a Flash plug-in.
