From MIT News:
Two years after the MIT Libraries’ Institute Archives were chosen as the stewards of Noam Chomsky’s personal papers, more than 260 boxes of the professor emeritus’ materials have been transferred, organized, and re-housed in the archives.
A new website, “Unbox the Chomsky Archive,” offers a preview of some of the unique materials found in the collection, as well as a way to support the archival project.
The next steps of the archival project will be to:
- process the collection, ensuring that any fragile materials, photographs, and digital materials are handled with care, and that materials are described accurately for researchers and future digitization purposes;
- an digitize the collection so that researchers from all over the world can have access to the materials without physically visiting MIT.
