In this digital era, the mode of universal access for information seeking and knowledge acquisition differs greatly from the traditional ways. We have witnessed the exciting convergence of content, technology, and global collaboration in the development of digital libraries, which has offered us unbounded opportunities for dynamic information access and delivery. This author has experienced much of the transformations from analog to digital in the last two decades through her own R&D activities – from the creation of interactive videodiscs and multimedia CDs on the First Emperor of China’s terracotta warriors and horses in the 1980s and 1990s to leading a current international digital library project, Global Memory Net (GMNet), supported by the US National Science Foundation. In presenting her vision for linking world digital resources together for universal access, she will share with the audience the latest development of Global Memory Net In honor of H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn at the special occasion of her 50
Birthday. The invaluable images of H.R.H. Princess and the Royal Family, as well as some of the most attractive sites of Thailand, such as the Grand Palace, etc. are included in GMNet as a part of the rare Thai Memory.
