The IEEE legacy project, started in 2003, is part of IEEE’s plan to digitize all papers from its technology journals, in an effort to bring historic, scholarly content to new generations of researchers and practitioners.
The IEEE legacy collection represents a critical evolutionary period that chronicles the development of today’s information age. With the addition of these historic publications, researchers will have access to a tremendous repository of papers by visionaries in the electrical engineering profession. As of 1 January 2010, over 330,000 total documents from more than 100 titles have been loaded—with more than 25,000 articles loaded in Q2 2009.
Subscribers to the IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL), IEEE Enterprise, and IEEE Member Digital Library will have access to this material.
These historic periodical titles are available in the IEEE Xplore digital library and will be updated periodically.

The IEEE Xplore digital library currently contains more than 2.5 million documents. Included are papers from more than 149 IEEE journals, 3,100 IEEE standards, and over 900 annual conference proceedings. The majority of the content dates back to 1988, though content from select publications dates back as far as 1893.
