Preservation of the New York Public Library's Collection on the United States Banking and Finance Industry

The preservation microfilming of 4,000 deteriorating volumes on the history of banking and finance in the United States published from 1800 to 1950.

The New York Public Library requests $360,200 in funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to preserve materials from its significant and unique collections on the United States banking and finance industry. The proposed project will preserve 4,000 monographs, published between the late-18th century and the mid-20th century, that are endangered by rapid deterioration. The project will produce approximately 600,000 frames of microfilm over two years, preserving 1.2 million pages of text. The project will build upon nine other Brittle Books projects at The New York Public Library, funded by the NEH, including Part I of this project, which was partially funded.
