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 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.



Unified Astronomy Thesaurus
The Unified Astronomy Thesaurus (UAT) is an open, interoperable, community-supported thesaurus that unifies the divergent and isolated astronomy and astrophysics thesauri into a single high-quality controlled vocabulary 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 in astronomy, astrophysics, and space exploration. The playlist is displayed in the library on a large screen and is also available online.
