JPMorgan Chase, through its Technology for Social Good program, has committed its technology expertise to help digitize over 100,000 of the more than one million pieces of history related to Dr. King. This innovative project has resulted in a global educational website based on a comprehensive collection of Dr. King's papers.This paper highlights the steps taken from the project's inception in April 2011 to the global launch of the web site in January 2012 to coincide with the anniversary of Dr. King's birthday. The intent of this document is to highlight the tools and technology involved, and to share the experiences of a large digitization archive and web initiative. Anand Sethupathy, the IT lead for the project from JPMorgan Chase Technology for Social Good program has provided insights into the IT infrastructure to help give a more complete picture of this effort.
