Support is welcome from foundations, institutions and individuals. Darwin Online is educational and non-profit.
Help us keep Darwin's work online, for free, for everyone!
With further funding Darwin Online can expand in exciting directions:
• To assemble a complete collection of every edition and variation of Darwin's published works in English and translations in 30 languages in both electronic text and scanned image forms.
• High-resolution colour scanning of Darwin's manuscripts.
• Transcription of Darwin's heretofore untranscribed manuscripts- making the full extant corpus of Charles Darwin electronically searchable.
• Editorial matter: more informative footnotes, introductions, interlinking, coding of the documents, translation of non-English passages.
• Assemble and digitize all contemporary reviews of Darwin's works, in all languages.
• Identify, assemble and provide online all of the works cited or referred to in Darwin's works.
• You can also help by scanning or lending books or sending photocopies: See our list of works still needed. We welcome 19th century publications discussing Darwin and Darwinism - as well as secondary literature.
