The Dig­i­tal Library of the Mid­dle East (DLME) offers free and open access to the rich cul­tur­al lega­cy of the Mid­dle East and North Africa by bring­ing togeth­er col­lec­tions from a wide range of cul­tur­al her­itage insti­tu­tions. Devel­oped by an engi­neer­ing team from CLIR and Stan­ford Libraries, the plat­form fed­er­ates and makes acces­si­ble data about col­lec­tions from around the world.

The plat­form is built upon the open source Spot­light and Black­light frame­works, and sup­ports pre­sen­ta­tion of resources com­pli­ant with the Inter­na­tion­al Image Inter­op­er­abil­i­ty Frame­work (IIIF) using the Mirador view­er.

DLME Found­ing Orga­ni­za­tions:
The Coun­cil on Library and Infor­ma­tion Resources (CLIR) is an inde­pen­dent, non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion that forges strate­gies to enhance research, teach­ing, and learn­ing envi­ron­ments in col­lab­o­ra­tion with libraries, cul­tur­al insti­tu­tions, and com­mu­ni­ties of high­er learn­ing and serves at the incu­ba­tor of the DLME. Among CLIR’s pro­grams and a core DLME con­trib­u­tor is the Dig­i­tal Library Fed­er­a­tion (DLF), an inter­na­tion­al net­work of mem­ber insti­tu­tions and a robust com­mu­ni­ty of prac­tice advanc­ing research, learn­ing, social jus­tice, and the pub­lic good through the cre­ative design and wise appli­ca­tion of dig­i­tal library tech­nolo­gies.
The Antiq­ui­ties Coali­tion is lead­ing the glob­al fight against cul­tur­al rack­e­teer­ing: the illic­it trade in antiq­ui­ties by orga­nized crim­i­nals and ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions. The Coalition’s inno­v­a­tive and prac­ti­cal solu­tions tack­le crimes against her­itage head on and include a focus on inven­to­ry, cat­a­logu­ing, doc­u­men­ta­tion, and dig­i­ti­za­tion of col­lec­tions as preser­va­tion efforts that enhance secu­ri­ty and sus­tain­abil­i­ty.
