Endeca to Build First Digitized Presidential Archives

Jul 13, 2010

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum and the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, committed to constructing the first online digitized presidential archive, will undertake the project with assistance from Endeca Technologies, Inc. Endeca will provide the technical and software assistance required to establish search capabilities at the archives' website.

The online archives, consisting of historical documents and images associated with the Presidency of John F. Kennedy, would be made accessible to global citizens, students, and scholars via a portal in the Kennedy Library website.

The project was first announced in 2006 by the president's brother, the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, who detailed a partnership between the library and the National Archives & Records Administration (NARA) to build a digital archive.
