Library Projects


Project PHaEDRAProject PHaEDRA
Project 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 Computers and early Harvard 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.



Unified Astronomy Thesaurus
The Unified Astronomy Thesaurus (UAT) is an open, interoperable and community-supported thesaurus which unifies the existing divergent and isolated Astronomy & Astrophysics thesauri into a single high-quality, freely-available open thesaurus formalizing astronomical concepts and their inter-relationships.



Visual Astronomy Display
Each month, the Wolbach Library curates a playlist, usually running about two hours long, of YouTube videos on the topics of astronomy, astrophysics, and space exploration.  The playlist is displayed on one of the Library’s large screen monitors, and it can also be found online.
