The Papers of Abraham Lincoln

  • The final product for the Papers of Abraham Lincoln will be a freely accessible comprehensive electronic edition of documents written by and to Abraham Lincoln, as well as reports of his speeches and other writings.  The edition will consist of three series.  On the electronic side, the project will produce a linked set of document images and annotated transcriptions that will become part of the project’s freely accessible Internet site.  Recurring biographies, definitions, and other reference materials can be linked to the appropriate transcriptions and annotations.  Once each series is complete and available to the public, users can view the images of the original documents or search the text of the transcriptions and annotations through a sophisticated search engine.  On the print side, the project will produce multiple volumes of appropriately annotated transcriptions of Lincoln’s writings and correspondence addressed to him.
