An important part of future research is having access to past research. Current researchers often need to have access to not only the papers produced by previous researchers but also to their records, communications, and data related to their published works. As the previous generation of researhers get older, they often leave behind the basis for their research in books, filing cabinets, computers, videos, CDs, and other forms of records and data. One of the purposes of shroudresearch.net is to collect this material in a central location and ficilitate its sorting and categoization to make it available to current researchers. This is a very large task and will require individuals dediated to the sorting and categorization process, as well as large sums of money to purchase the facilities that will be required for this work.
