Preservation Microfilming of Brittle Books and Serials on Southern History and Culture

The preservation microfilming and enhanced cataloging of embrittled volumes on American history, literature, religion, higher education, and economic development published between 1800 and 1970 that are held by 17 members of the Southeastern Library Network located in ten southeastern states and Puerto Rico.

SOLINET proposes to preserve the intellectual content of 5,513 brittle volumes documenting the history and culture of the American South. 17 libraries have selected titles from important humanities collections focused on various aspects of the South, including religion, African-American studies, history of science and technology, history of higher education, and state/regional history and culture. Pre-filming preparation, bibliographic control, microfilming, and post-filming quality control for all libraries will be coordinated through the central Microfilm Service at SOLINET. Microfilmed volumes will be available at project libraries for use, interlibrary loan, or reproduction as copyright permits.
