Summary

The Archimedes Project makes available texts and manuscripts related to Ancient, Medieval, and Renaissance mechanics and mathematics by both digitizing pages and creating electronic editions of the works.

The website lists these stated goals: "The Archimedes Project will create a testbed for developing and exploring model interactive environments for the history of mechanics. It will also serve as a proof-of-concept project for open digital libraries for topics in the history of science designed to integrate research and knowledge dissemination in new ways."

The site can be searched or browsed by author's name and subject.
