A project to promote China's national digital library was launched in Beijing on Wednesday. It aims to ensure that every organization, every family and every person has their own digital library through new media, such as mobile phone, digital TV and internet.

With the national digital library as the core, this project will connect all libraries nationwide to form a single, massive digital library.

The construction of a national digital library has achieved preliminary results, according to Wei Dawei, deputy director of the National Library. As of the end of 2010, digital resources have reached 460 terabytes and the public can access 76 percent of records, which cover various historical periods at home and abroad.
