New web site for the i2010 digital libraries initiative

The EU i2010 strategy has launched a new web site on the Digital Libraries Initiative, including a new FAQ.  The project is European-wide and multi-lingual, covering both the sciences and cultural heritage, and includes a commitment to massive digitization, long-term preservation, and open access for works in the public domain and those copyrighted works for which the project can obtain permission.

PS: I'd say more about this important initiative here but I've often blogged it in the past.  I hope the new web site lets the i2010 team streamline or simplify its confusing proliferation of sites.
