Univ. of Virginia Press and Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library Announce Digitization Project

From The News Leader (Staunton, VA):

In collaboration with the University of Virginia Press, the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library Foundation is embarking on a digitization project to preserve Wilson’s collection of notes and materials. The Woodrow Wilson Project will gather these documents in one place, memorialize them and make them accessible for everyone. The process is expected to take several years.

From the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library:

Founded in 2004, the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library Foundation (WWPL) seeks to preserve this president’s collections and materials by embarking on a digitization project, The Woodrow Wilson Project, which would gather these documents in one place, memorialize them and make them accessible to all who wish to have access to them.

The Papers of Woodrow Wilson Digital Edition will be accomplished in two phases. All of the documents will be housed in one place, at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library’s digital library, which is open to the public.
