|Digital Taiwan─ Culture & Nature|
In order to showcase the cultural heritage and natural resources of Taiwan to the world as well as to complement the existing Chinese portal (http://digitalarchives.tw/) which demonstrates TELDAP's accomplishments, we have created a “Digital Taiwan – Culture & Nature” multi-language portal. It provides the global community with an in-depth and convenient way to appreciate Taiwan's culture and digitization achievements. As the contents of archives increase, so will the functions of the portal expand to meet the public's expectations. The portal will make Taiwan's academic and digital archive activities more visible to the world community.
Major contents of “Digital Taiwan – Culture & Nature” are planned as follows:
“Digital Taiwan – Culture & Nature” also integrates cultural material funded by Taiwan's Council for Cultural Affairs of the Executive Yuan. Additionally, it shares biological information from the Union Catalog with the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), seeks to create a Chinese version of the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL), and provides English information on the Taiwanese endemic species.
