The Wilson Center Digital Archive brings together and contextualizes a vast trove of once-secret documents relating to the Cold War, North Korea, and nuclear proliferation. Much more than just an archive, the site curates a variety of topics into compelling narratives, timelines, and images. In addition, multiple interfaces, including an interactive map, allow researchers to make their own pathways through this important collection,” noted Daniel J. Cohen, the 2013 Rosenzweig Prize committee co-chair and executive director of the Digital Public Library of America.
