Printer ink maker Hewlett Packard has signed an agreement to digitise and deliver the archive library of Paul McCartney.

HP will work closely with McCartney Productions Limited (MPL) to offer the ex-Beatle's historic archive through a private cloud platform, opening up parts of the library to fans and offering a "personal and unparalleled glimpse into McCartney's work." Cloud computing is simply the provision or storage of services over the internet (cloud).

"I've always been interested in creative ideas and new ways of reaching people, so this is a really exciting initiative for me," McCartney said. "I hope it will allow people who might be interested to access parts of our archives they might otherwise not be able to. I'm looking forward to working with HP on this project."

McCartney's library is understood to include works never seen before, a diverse range of paintings, art, film and images that stand alongside the master copies of what are some the best pop songs ever written.
