Digital Collections Inventory Report
Preliminary ResultsBy Patricia A. McClung
The Pauling Collection: Oregon State University
OSU’s library is in the process of converting the collection of Nobel Prize winner and Oregon native Linus Pauling and his wife Ava Helen Pauling into digital format. The plan is to provide worldwide access to these materials via the Internet, although local campus users can search the system through the OSU online public catalog. OCR technology is being used for the conversion (with 75- 80% accuracy, although they hope to achieve 100% accuracy).
