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.)
