Google pays tribute to the Belgian creator of the Mundaneum with a special “doodle”Sunday, 23 August 2015 20:03
The Mundaneum doodle appeared on the search engine’s google.be pages on Sunday, to mark the 147th anniversary of Paul Otlet’s birth. It also appeared on the Google homepage for France, Luxemburg, Sweden and Denmark, the company said.
“Paul Otlet was a pioneer in making information freely available. Decades later, engineers used his vision as inspiration to make technologically sharing information possible”, Google said.
Google said Paul Otlet started the Universal Bibliographical Library with Henri La Fontaine in the early 1900s. It has become known as the Mundaneum. What is left of the collection can be found in Mons, in a renovated building that opened in June.
