From time to time, I like to feature some interesting scanning projects, and this one certainly qualifies.
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem has put more than 2,000 of Albert Einstein’s documents online for anyone to view.
There are manuscripts (including one of only three manuscripts containing e=mc2), letters from his personal life, his Nobel Prize, speeches about the Jewish people, and much more.
The digitization project is being launched with 2,000 high-quality images on March 19, 2012. The project will continue throughout 2012.
Over 80,000 records of documents held in original and as copies in the Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University (AEA) and at the Einstein Papers Project at Caltech (EPP) can now be accessed with a user-friendly interface via the internet.
