Newton Papers on Cambridge Digital Library

The Cambridge University has scanned and put online thousands of pages of Newton’s papers and notes on the Internet. More papers are being scanned and made available in the near future. These notes are of historical value and can give an understanding of how this genius thought and worked hundreds of years ago.

However, reading these notes can be difficult as they were mainly written in Latin and Greek. It is an example how technology can be used to preserve invaluable paper heritage and allow it to be accessed by millions across the world. Without the Cambridge Digital Library, people who want to see Newton’s work must travel to Cambridge.
