The University of Texas at Austin plans to digitize itsĀ archive of Colombian novelist and Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

The Harry Ransom Center, an institution based at the University of Texas at Austin, acquired the archive of the late author after his death in 2014.

The new project will be funded by a $126,730 grant from the nonprofit Council on Library and Information Resources, according to a report in The Associated Press. Here is more from the piece:

The 18-month project is set to start in June. It will involve scanning manuscripts, notebooks, scrapbooks, photographs and ephemera and making them accessible online. The materials date from 1950 through 2013.
