Microfilm Project

Microfilm

With support from a grant to Harvard University funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), publications in the Wolbach Library were microfilmed in order to ensure their preservation for future researchers.  The project also allowed the Library to duplicate publications from the greater astronomical community and engendered international collaboration as observatories and educational institutions worldwide contributed materials to be preserved.  In all, the project produced 783,522 frames or 1403 reels of microfilm.  A total of 1206 titles, both serials and monographs, were filmed.  The NASA ADS has digitized a large part of this material and it is accessible online.  See the web site for the Weissman Preservation Center at the Harvard University Library or contact the Library for further information.

Digital

The following titles from the John G. Wolbach Library at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics have been microfilmed and digitized. Digitization is being carried out by Preservation Resources, a division of OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. In an ongoing project, these digitized materials are being made freely available online through the Scanned Historical Literature section of the NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)
