Digital Collections Inventory Report
Preliminary ResultsBy Patricia A. McClung
Ancient Near East and Classics Material: University of Chicago
The University of Chicago Library received funds (as part of a larger National Endowment for the Humanities preservation project) for a modest, but interesting, effort to scan deteriorated volumes in these subject areas if they contain both text and illustrative materials. The project includes approximately 100 volumes, which constitutes a very small part of the library’s collection.
