Darwin's Works Online

The Guardian reported Thursday about a new effort by Cambridge University to put all of Charles Darwin's works online. Some 50,000 pages of text (entirely searchable), as well as "tens of thousands of images, many from previously unpublished manuscripts, together with notebooks, diaries and original publications such as The Origin of Species, The Voyage of the Beagle (the Journal of Researches) and The Descent of Man." There will even be audio versions of some key works.

"'Nowhere possesses this complete collection. It's a complete run of his papers which has never been assembled in any form anywhere,' said John van Wyhe, director of The Complete Work of Charles Darwin Online project."

Another great resource!

The URL for the project is http://darwin-online.org.uk/.
