“Our Digital World” is one of the BA permanent exhibitions showcasing its most exciting cutting-edge digital projects.
The exhibition captures the pursuit of the BA to be a universal digital library. It includes projects documenting the history of modern Egypt, such as Memory of Modern Egypt and the digital archives of former presidents Naguib, Nasser and Sadat; scientific projects as the Science Supercourse and the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL); and digitization projects of precious books as Description de l'Egypte and L'Art Arabe. There is also a special section with computers allocated to public use to give them the opportunity to explore the collection of the digital initiatives, in addition to short movies on each project in different languages.
The Exhibition is held at the BA Main Entrance and is open to the BA visitors free of charge. Guided tours are available Sunday through Thursday from 10 am to 4 pm, in both Arabic and English.
