Travel the Globe with ibiblio.

And the wonderful clear, pure air wells into your lungs the while by voluptuous inhalations, and makes the eyes bright, and sets the heart tinkling to a new tune-- or, rather, to an old tune; for you remember in your boyhood something akin to this spirit of adventure, this thirst for exploration, that now takes you masterfully by the hand, plunges you into many a deep grove, and drags you over many a stony crest.

Robert Louis Stevenson, 1905
Essays of Travel from Project Gutenberg.

Degree Confluence Project

Degree Confluence Project.

A confluence is defined as a flowing together; a meeting place (often of rivers). In this case, a degree confluence is the exact spot where an integer degree of latitude and an integer degree of longitude meet. The goal of the Degree Confluence Project is to visit each of the latitude and longitude integer degree intersections in the world, and to take pictures at each location. There are 64,442 latitude and longitude degree intersections in the world (counting each pole as one intersection). Of these, 47,650 meet the goals of the project after removing many confluences near the poles. Of these, about 14,000 are actually on the land. As you may guess, they're not worried about running out of confluences.

Gnawa Stories

Image of the Gnawa.

Somewhere in Morocco, between African Shamanism and Islam, and between primitive traditions and modernity, you will find the Gnawa, mystical musician healers from Morocco. From a marginalized subculture to "official" representatives of Moroccan culture, many Gnawa have undergone a dramatic transition in the past decade. This is the first multimedia website project of its kind dedicated to the Gnawa. Mixing video, audio, photographs and text, Gnawa Stories takes you inside the uncharted waters of this secret world, and explores the Gnawas' commitment to connect with their traditions while adapting to a new Global Age.

Virtual Shtetl

Virtual Shtetl.

Shtetl is a Yiddish word meaning a small town or settlement. The Virtual Shtetl takes that concept into the electronic networked environment, providing links to a large number of Jewish language, education and cultural resources.

The San Pedro de Atacama Project

The San Pedro de Atacama Project.

Twenty-two students from two universities, on two continents, speaking two languages gathered for 10 days in the Atacama desert of northern Chile in July, 2001, to push the limits of documentary multimedia storytelling. Under the guidance of Professor Rich Beckman from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Professor Cristobal Edwards from the School of Journalism at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, student journalists, equipped with the latest digital video and still cameras, digital audio recorders and laptop computers produced this Web site.

The Online Burma/Myanmar Library

The Online Burma/Myanmar Library.

The Online Burma/Myanmar Library is a database which functions as an annotated, classified and hyperlinked index to full texts of individual Burma documents on the Internet. It also houses a growing collection of articles, conference papers, theses, books, reports, archives and directories on-site. The Library's starting point historically was the Burma Peace Foundation's documentation of the human rights situation in Burma, and with the UN Burma material, this area still comprises about half the total number of items. This ratio is falling as the other sections -- Bibliographies/research, Economy, Geography, Health, History, Military, Politics and Government, Society and Culture, etc. -- are built up. They invite specialists to provide various levels of input in their specific areas of knowledge, from commenting on the structure, sending web addresses (URLs) of online items that should be added, emailing documents to be placed directly on the site, to editing whole sections or sub-sections.
