A digital libray is a type of library only accesible through the Internet since they are kept in digital formats. In this case we´ll be accesing to the Early American Digital Library and the UCSF Library, both of them American digital libraries. While the Early American Library is a little bit more specific showing, through different methods, the early history of the country, while the UCSF Libray has different books, journals and documents in its lists. And since this first one is more specific I will be concentrating on that one.
