The Obama Presidential Center in Chicago will not include any paper documents from former President Barack Obama’s presidency, Fox News reported in October.
The Obama Foundation is instead opting to have a digital archive of his records, “the decision has historians scratching their heads,” according to Fox News.
“All archivists are waiting to see how this will work, because we are all struggling with how to make things available digitally,” Peggy Glowacki, a manuscripts librarian at the University of Illinois at Chicago said to the Chicago Tribune. “I think in this case it’s such a massive amount of material that it will be important to see how they are able to deliver it and make it easy to search.”
