Complete Darwin Papers Debut Online

Posted by on Apr 29, 2008 in Science | No Comments

The complete works of Charles Darwin—the man who wrote The Origin of Species—are finally available online. Heck it only took 126 years and another scientific revolution (kind of) to make it happen.

Cambridge University, where Darwin studied theology, has digitized and published online its entire collection of some 30,000 items and 90,000 images. Some include scans of the original draft of The Origin of Species, audio samples, private papers, tons of journal entries, and just about anything else you can image. Pretty neat stuff for both those interested in Darwin and hardcore scholars alike.
