About the migration of educational content

Content originated from the main BRI site, the Resources (Voices of History) site, Documents of Freedom and the Textbook hosted on OpenStax Tutor, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

An Amazon S3 directory was created to centralize all the PDF documents across the sites. Most documents were moved to that new directory. Images were extracted from the existing sites to serve as the cover image for each product.

The total number of content items extracted and loaded into this new site was 3,897. Additionally, a number of customized pages were added to present views into content, bringing the number of searchable educational content items close to four thousand.
