Presidential Library Begins Digitization Program

“The entire collection of papers, documents, photographs and audio recordings of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy is to be digitized and made available online.

‘The 10-year project to build a new digital library is a joint collaboration between IT vendor EMC, the JFK Documents to Be Digitized, Published Online and the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration.”

“The archives of the Kennedy Presidential Library’s research facilities currently include more than 8.4 million pages of the personal, congressional and presidential papers of JFK, along with more than 40 million pages of 300-plus other individuals who were associated with the Kennedy Administration or mid-20th century U.S. history.”
