Digitization notes 

  • This website includes documents from Raymond Stora's archives - mostly correspondence, notes and manuscripts.
  • The documents have been digitized in July-August 2016
  • The documents had been previously sorted in 9 categories. Part 8 has not been digitized (Scientific evaluations).
  • During the digitization, the order of the documents within the categories was not modified.
  • Arbitrary identification numbers have been added to each document.
  • Documents that were together inside a folder, have been in general scanned separately, but the identification numbers help to remember that those documents are physically stored together (e.g. II-23-A, II-23-B were stored in the folder II-23)
  • Minimum metadata have been written (dates, document type, sender name in case of letters, article titles when available) within excel files. These metadata are limited, given the time constraints.
  • In many cases, the original documents are already copies, this results in a low quality of the scanned document.
  • Some documents have not been scanned: Scientific evalutions, some articles (that did not contain handwritten notes and that are already published online.
