It has been a busy year for the Digital Library Center! I wanted to take a moment to bask in our success.
We completed 7 planned digital projects which included:
- The Susan Bradford Eppes and Pine Hill Plantation Papers which now live in the FSUDL as the Bradford-Eppes Family Collection
- Florida County and City Histories which is part of our Florida Heritage College
- All 552 FSU Bulletins and Catalogs
- Papyri and Ostraka collections
- the newsletters from the National Organization of Women, Tallahassee Chapter Records
- Feldwebel Schaefer WWII 1940 Battle of France photograph album, 1941-1940 (which also marked our first digital collection from the Institute on World War II and the Human Experience)
We also started a long-term digitization project with Le Moniteur, a periodical from our Napoleonic collections.
Collaborative digitization projects were also started with the department of Art History, for which half of the John House Stereograph Collection is now available online, and with the department of Anthropology where we hope to have materials to share online soon!
All in all, we added 6,026 objects to the digital library this year which encompasses thousands and thousands of digitized book pages, letters, photographs and 3-D objects.
It has been a busy and rewarding year as we keep growing how many projects we can take on each year. We’re already working on new projects for next year so stay tuned for what comes next!
