Chornobyl': Newspapers Collection is a small suite of collections comprised of three previously unavailable local newspapers (Tribuna Energetika, Prapor peremogy, and Trybuna pratsi) published in towns in the exclusion zone and its immediate vicinity offering researchers essential information for the study of the social background of the Chornobyl' disaster. While Prapor peremogy and Trybuna pratsi provide readers with an opportunity to explore the larger socio-cultural and historical context of the regions affected by the Chornobyl' disaster, Tribuna Energetika, published under the aegis of the Chornobyl' Nuclear Power Plant, invites researchers to explore the everyday life in the plant and the city of Prip'yat' more generally. As such researchers are provided with a unique access to some of the most important and less known primary sources from the era encapsulating the voices, concerns and experiences of the victims up until the catastrophe.

The Jefferson Weather & Climate Records is a digital historical documentary edition of Thomas Jefferson’s 50-year compilation (1776-1826) of meteorological observations, sometimes expanded to include information on local ecology and seasonal patterns; and supplemented by related materials found elsewhere in Jefferson’s personal papers. Registering this type of scientific data across an extended period was a rare undertaking in eighteenth- and early-nineteenth-century North America. The synthesis and online presentation of these materials, a joint project of the Papers of Thomas Jefferson at Princeton University (PTJ) and the Center for Digital Editing at the University of Virginia (CDE), has transformed them from a heterogeneous assemblage of manuscript notations to a coherent digital archive that can be readily accessed, understood, and interpreted for a notable range of research investigations, from scientific and cultural history to presidential biography to the urgent contemporary project of tracing the historical development of climate change.
