The ICMI Digital Library Project

The ICMI Digital Library Project aims at providing open access to ICMI publications.  
The Commission has been contemplating for a long time making available freely online all the documents produced by ICMI or on the occasion of the various activities organised under its auspices.  This long-term initiative received a major impetus in 2007 when, in the context of the Digitisation Programme of the International Mathematical Union, ICMI was offered by the IMU Executive Committee to have the support of the IMU Committee on Electronic Information and Communication (CEIC), in particular as regards the digitisation of past ICMI publications.
The material to be made acccessible via the ICMI Digital Library includes for instance the issues of the ICMI Bulletin, the Proceedings of all the ICME congresses or the volumes resulting from the ICMI Studies.  But it also refers to other publications related to activities supported or sponsored by ICMI, such as the proceedings of ICMI regional conferences.
Comment and suggestions about the ICMI Digital Library Project and how to make it a useful tool for the community are most welcome and should be sent to the ICMI Secretary-General.

An overview of the available documents can be found below.
