The digitization of 16,200 pages of publications containing annotations and marginalia of Charles Darwin, along with over 3,800 pages of original Darwin manuscripts, all relating to the scientist’s theoretical and experimental observations pertaining to evolution.

Digitization of 20,609 pages of books and manuscripts from the Darwin archive at Cambridge University will complete the production of digital collections of Charles Darwin's Library and Darwin's Evolution Papers, which will be disseminated online by the Darwin Manuscripts Project of the American Museum of Natural History. Through the proposed work, all the books in Darwin's personal scientific library and all Darwin's extant manuscripts devoted to the theory of evolution will become globally available.
