I'd rather doubt that a research library would want to host such a
collection of copies of source material found in various public archives.

Listing the available source material, and producing abstracts for it,
might be marginally practicable given enough volunteers.  Collecting in
one place copies of the source material from 200 countries is both much
less practicable and of limited utility until automatic searching of
manuscript material is much more advanced than at present.
