The YIVO institute for Jewish Research (YIVO) has completed the digitisation of its prewar library and archival collections.
The Edward Blank YIVO Vilna Online Collections project is an international project to preserve, digitize, and virtually reunite YIVO’s prewar library and archival collections located in New York City and Vilnius, Lithuania, through a dedicated web portal. The project will also digitally reconstruct the historic, private Strashun Library of Vilna, one of the great prewar libraries of Europe.

The project was partially funded by the Good Will Foundation.
