The North American Imprints Program, 1801 to 1820: Creation of a Union Catalog

The continued creation of a union catalog of all books, pamphlets, and broadsides printed before 1877 in the United States and Canada. This project would enhance 7,150 records and create 500 new records for imprints from the period 1801 through 1820.

This proposal seeks funding for the current phase of the North American Imprints Program (NAIP). NAIP's long-term goal is the creation of a machine-readable union catalog of books, pamphlets and broadsides printed in the United States and Canada before 1877. With funding requested here, NAIP staff will create detailed records for materials printed from 1801 through 1820. Staff will catalog both imprints held by the American Antiquarian Society (AAS) and imprints not held by AAS but known to be held by other libraries. Staff will build upon the more than 35,000 records descriptive of the "Early American Imprints, Second Series, 1801-1819" microform series and will create an estimated 5,600 new records for titles not reproduced in microform.
