200 years of accumulated information is now only a click away.
Wikilala is a digital library that allows "research" in Ottoman texts (newspapers, magazines, books and documents) printed after the invention of the printing press. There is currently no library that allows the curious or academic researchers to make research in Ottoman texts in Latin script. Until the age of digital printing, researchers had to scan pages and even read line by line to find what they are looking for in Ottoman texts. However, thanks to Wikilala, they can reach all the titles and content they are looking for with a single move in fractions of a second.
