As heralded by academic and popular works of the past several decades, much of the world is entering what some have called the Information Age, and some have noted that the access and availability to knowledge in a variety of forms will determine the success of national and regional development in this century. This particular site, organized and maintained by UNESCO, brings together hundreds of resources on the development of the Information Society from around the world, including various reports on the digital divide, online governance, e-commerce, intellectual property rights, infostructure, and virtual libraries. Visitors to the site can browse the available materials by region, country, or by thematic topic of interest. The homepage also provides a frequently updated news section that contains links to related events, recently released studies, and other materials generated by UNESCO and partner agencies.
