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.)

Buy viagra ebay Simply put, epp is an absolute light intolerance brought about by a build up of photosensitive compounds in the skin of the sufferer. It manifests itself during or after exposure to sunlight as swelling, burning, itching and redness of the skin. purchase generic viagra online The major symptom however, and the most difficult to live with, is extreme and intense pain following exposure to light (particularly blue light, 400-410nm). Epp is an hereditary genetic condition that mostly becomes active during childhood, but is difficult to diagnose in the young. This is because younger sufferers often do not experience the visible symptoms of swelling and redness of the skin, just intense pain. purchase generic viagra online Because of this they can be mis-diagnosed, referred to psychologists or have their reactions suspected to be behavioural. It tends to effect sufferers most noticeably on their face and hands, areas that are often exposed to light. Repeated or extreme reactions to light and the damage brought about by phototoxic reactions can result in varying degrees of scarring and thickening of the skin. Study and understanding of epp is made difficult by both its rarity and difficulties in diagnosis, but progress is being made. It appears that the body’s natural production of heme is central to epp. Heme carries out many essential functions in the body, one of which is the transportation of oxygen via haemoglobin. It is created in red cells and its synthesis relies on the interaction of enzymes and various molecules to create the porphyrin we call heme. Generic viagra cheapest The development of heme involves several stages of synthesis before completion. Epp sufferer’s bodies are unable to finish this synthesis, resulting in a buildup of incomplete heme molecules. These molecules are known as protoporphyrin (ppix) and they gather in the skin. Ppix molecules are highly photosensitive, meaning that when exposed to light they become phototoxic, and begin reacting destructively. We have seen that afamelanotide may be of great benefit to those diagnosed with epp by providing photoprotection of the skin. Our hope is that with treatment, epp sufferers will be able to lead fuller and more active outdoor lives, without the constant risk of cutaneous phototoxic reactions.
