Martin Luther King Jr. and digitization

In 2006, a group of Atlanta business and civic leaders  raised $32 million to purchase 10,000 documents from the family of Martin Luther King Jr.  Those documents are now housed at Morehouse College, which Dr. King  graduated from in 1948.  Looking through the materials on the Morehouse web site, I am very pleased to see this:
The Collection is stored at the Robert W. Woodruff Library where it is being digitized and archived.
Because there has been limited access to the collection in the past, this is very good news!  And I'm glad that I found it today (Martin Luther King Jr. Day).
