Digitizing Einstein

There's news of a cool new digitization project: Princeton University Press is partnering with online publishing platform Tizra to make Albert Einstein's papers available online. The Collected Papers, will contain searchable text, in German and in English translation, for the thousands of pages of Einstein’s work throughout his lifetime. The papers include lectures, research notebooks, interviews, and letters. Nearly 14,000 of Einstein's papers will provide a complete picture of a massive written legacy that ranges from his first work on the special and general theories of relativity and the origins of quantum theory, to expressions of his profound concern with civil liberties, education, Zionism, pacifism, and disarmament.
