QuickWire: Einstein Papers Go Digital

Albert Einstein’s mind might soon be a little easier to navigate.

The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein will be made available in digital form by the digital-publishing-platform company Tizra, according to a news release. The digitization of The Collected Papers, published by Princeton University Press, 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.

Once completed, the Einstein Papers Project will fill 14,000 pages and almost 30 volumes.
