Submission + - Harvard Law School digitizes the life of Oliver Wendell Holmes

nyteroot writes: After years of work, Harvard Law School's Oliver Wendell Holmes Digital Suite is live. As The Harvard Gazette explains, "[T]he site aggregates multiple archival holdings into a single, hyperaccessible digital suite that anyone with a computer can search, browse, and tag. (The library uses the word “suite” to mean a collection of collections.) In the new suite, users can search and browse across five manuscript and three visual collections." Oliver Wendell Holmes is "one of the most widely cited United States Supreme Court justices in history."

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
