eGranary Digital Library
The eGranary Digital Library - also known as "The Internet in a Box" - provides millions of digital educational resources to institutions lacking adequate Internet access.
Through a process of garnering permissions, copying Web sites, and delivering them to intranet Web servers INSIDE our partner institutions in developing countries and other places around the globe, we deliver millions of multimedia documents that can be instantly accessed by patrons over their local area networks at no cost.
The eGranary is much more than just static information, the digital library contains built-in tools for subscribers to upload and edit local materials as well as create and edit their own websites, which are stored locally.
