Albert Einstein`s archives to be digitised
Jerusalem: Over 80,000 documents of the Albert Einstein archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem would now be digitised.
The digitised information will be available to researchers and the public, Xinhua reported citing a statement from the university released on Einstein`s birthday and also the Israel National Science Day, both March 14.
A $500,000 grant has been given by an unnamed benefactor from London.
"Our goal is to build a user-friendly, inclusive digital database," Hebrew University president Menahem Ben-Sasson said.
Einstein, who was one of the founders of the Hebrew University, left his entire archives to the institute in his will.
The set of documents had originally been stored at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton in New Jersey state in the US, where the Nobel Prize winner had carried on research for decades.
The documents were brought to Israel in 1982, where they were kept in the Jewish National Library at the university.
Einstein`s papers are considered one of the most important set of physics resources.
