Yale University Press Provides Access to Stalin’s Papers in Digital Archive
From Publishers Weekly
Stalin’s personal papers, many accessible only at the Russian State Archive of Social and Political History, more than 28,000 documents in all, are part of a Web-based initiative that Yale University Press is currently beta testing, the Stalin Digital Archive.
Users can create tags that can be shared and collaborate with colleagues around the world. While Yale will translate some of the documents from Russian, Schiffman envisions crowd-sourcing additional translations.
The press plans to sell access to the archives and its 404,000 pages of writings to libraries.
