The King Center Imaging Project

My friends at C&G Partners just launched a fantastic new site for The King Center in Atlanta. The new site allows the public to access never before seen artifacts from the King collection. Thousands of documents – letters, speeches, drafts, notes, photos and more – are available for free to the general public for the first time.

I especially like how on archive detail pages the user can pan and zoom and view details of the document. Wear and tear on the paper, handwritten notes scribbled in margins, and the signature of Dr. King himself can all be seen in minute detail.

Impressive.
