Making Stanford’s treasures accessible to all

Making Stanford’s treasures accessible to all

Interacting with the personal archives of people who shaped literary, scientific, and political history is a uniquely informative and inspiring experience. Stanford’s libraries safeguard a rich trove of such materials, yet in the past, researchers have had to visit the university’s campus to study these documents. By supporting Stanford Libraries’ efforts to digitize treasures that range from medieval manuscripts to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s papers, VPTL has helped to make these materials broadly available, and has enabled the production of more thorough and reliable research.
