Grant will help safeguard images of Lincoln papers

Papers of Abraham Lincoln receives ‘AWS in Education Grant’ to store images in secure environment

September 3, 2013

SPRINGFIELD – The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum announced today that Amazon Web Services has awarded the Papers of Abraham Lincoln an “AWS in Education Grant” of $24,000 in storage services. This will allow the Papers of Abraham Lincoln to store more than 35 terabytes of master image files in a secure environment.

For the past decade, the staff of the Papers of Abraham Lincoln has been collecting images of documents written by or to Abraham Lincoln from repositories and private collections around the world. The project has scanned more than 90,000 documents from more than 400 repositories and 180 private collections in 47 states and 5 foreign countries thus far. The archive will likely top 150,000 documents when complete.

From 2006 to 2013, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign housed the growing archive of master image files. The retirement of their Mass Storage System has forced the project to look for a new storage solution for its 35 terabytes of files. (Thirty-five terabytes is roughly equivalent to a digital music file that would play non-stop for 68 years, or to 10.8 million photographs.)

Introduction 2. Material and methods 3. Results 4. cheap viagra buy Discussion 5. Conclusions references abstract purpose: to assess the bladder preservation rate and cancer-specific survival after conservative treatment of superficial relapses in invasive tumors after bladder preservation. Material and methods: fifty-one patients with invasive bladder tumor (t2) were treated using transurethral resection (tur) followed by three cycles of systemic chemotherapy (carboplatin-vinblastine). After three weeks, an endoscopic reappraisal was made including deep tur of the site of the original tumor and multiple cold cup biopsies. cheap viagra buy Forty-two patients retained their bladder (33 complete responses and 9 partial responses). cheap viagra buy Results: with a median follow-up of 63 months, 18 patients recurred as superficial tcc tumor (43%). Best price viagra online Fourteen patients with high grade superficial recurrence were treated with tur and bacillus calmette-guerin (bcg) instillations; two patients (g2–3 t1) with tur as well as endovesical mytomicine, and two patients with low grade recurrence with only tur. Generic viagra release With a median follow-up of 44 months after tur of first superficial relapse, there was only one case with progression of the disease without any evidence of bladder tumor. Two cystectomies were made due to carcinoma in situ (cis) persistence and high grade superficial recurrence. Eighty-three percent of the patients who had superficial recurrence retained their bladders, with 94% cancer-specific survival. Conclusions: a very strict follow-up is mandatory due to the high rate of superficial relapses (43%). Cis is the most frequent type of superficial recurrence. Superficial recurrences in bladder preservation may be treated with tur and bcg instillations when they are high grade and and/or associated with cis. Superficial recurrences do not imply a worse prognosis for bladder preservation or cancer-specific survival.
