National Library of Turkey Shares Its Plan to Digitize Its Collections

Daily Sabah reports, “Efforts are underway to digitize [the Turkey] National Library’s vast collection, totaling 20 million pages of resources, with plans to extend accessibility beyond [its location in] Ankara, announced Taner Beyoglu, general director of Libraries and Publications at the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.”

Beyoglu says, “In recent years, the National Library has digitized over 20 million pages, primarily focusing on newspapers, magazines and books. We prioritize scanning books with expired copyrights, making them accessible through the digital library on the National Library’s website. Additionally, all issues of our national newspapers until the end of 2023 have been digitized. Our efforts continue as we digitize local newspapers, beginning with the oldest editions.”
