The digitization and presentation online of the contents of up to 5,000 volumes of annual reports and periodicals (ca. 400,000 pages in total) documenting Christian missionary activity around the world from 1850 to 1950.

The Yale Divinity Library, a division of the Yale University Library, proposes to digitize and make publicly accessible up to 5,000 volumes of annual reports and periodicals from the Day Missions Collection, the preeminent North American collection for documentation of the history of the missionary enterprise and the development of Christianity throughout the world. The prospective audiences are many, from scholars of mission history to social historians both of the U.S. and the rest of the world, from institutional stakeholders in the religious communities themselves to a broad range of general readers with an interest in the history of their country, their churches, and their families. A successful project will offer scholars, educators, students, and general readers useful and integrated access to rare and fragile materials, while eliminating the potentially damaging use of the originals and benefiting a wide community interested in world Christianity and its interactions and effects.
