PHaEDRA is an initiative by the Wolbach Library, in collaboration with many partners, to catalog, digitize, transcribe, and enrich the metadata of over 2500 logbooks and notebooks produced by the Harvard's Women Computers and other early astronomers. Our goal is to ensure that this remarkable set of items, created by a remarkable group of people, is as accessible and useful as possible.
We are using the Zooniverse to link the PHaEDRA notebooks to their source material: over 500,000 astronomical glass plate photographs. Making these connections will create a bridge between the modern scientific literature and 100 years of astronomical observations.
