Mother Jones: Barack Obama’s Library, the First Digital-Driven Presidential Archives in History, Breaks Ground Today

Mother Jones: Barack Obama’s Library, the First Digital-Driven Presidential Archives in History, Breaks Ground Today. “The center, as the New York Times reports, ‘won’t actually be a presidential library. In a break with precedent, there will be no research library on site, and none of Mr. Obama’s official presidential records. Instead, the Obama Foundation will pay to digitize the roughly 30 million pages of unclassified paper records from the administration so they can be made available online.’ Alongside the center will sit a museum, a sports space, a test kitchen, an art plaza, a kids’ area, and a new branch of the Chicago Public Library.”
