Opening Up the Past to
Shape the Future
Wiley Digital Archives is an ongoing program to digitize groundbreaking content from the archives and libraries of the world’s leading research societies. These primary source collections include maps, original manuscripts, periodicals, administrative papers, historical books, photographs, ephemera and more, made accessible in ways that extend beyond the traditional paradigms of “search, browse, and retrieve.“
Our intuitive, purpose-built platform has been specifically designed to meet archival research needs, while connecting the content to educational outcomes. All of the materials in each collection have been compiled into a discoverable, online format, enabling researchers from all parts of the country or all over the world to easily access and collaborate on these source materials.
Our built-in analysis tools help researchers uncover new context and meanings in these materials, particularly the previously unpublished correspondence, drafts, data and manuscripts. Ultimately, this helps them gain a deeper understanding of, or even reinterpret, previously published research conclusions.
Wiley Digital Archives presents extremely robust features and tools for users. The dense archival collections are highly navigable with rich metadata and advanced filtering functionality. The range of exploration and analysis tools present users with innovative ways to explore within—and across—archives and collections.
