From the Dean

As you will see in this and earlier issues of Source, the Libraries are making significant headway in attracting grants to digitize our unique collections. This initiative makes what are often
fragile, one-of-a-kind publications, historical records, documents, photographs—and even a 16th century choir book—readily accessible for use by researchers around the world.

The Cincinnatian, the student yearbook dating back to 1894, offers fascinating insights about the university as well as Cincinnati history over the course of 12 decades. When the project to digitize the correspondence and photographs of Albert B. Sabin is completed in 2013, it will be possible to explore the work of this major figure in ways that greatly surpass current access to this collection.

The good news is that we have many more special collections in the queue that both warrant preservation in their original form yet are excellent candidates for this new world of digital
collections.
