Cataloging the Land Transport Serials Collection at The Henry Ford

Cataloging and improving preservation of the land transport serials collection held by the Benson Ford Research Center, comprising over 800 titles and 51,000 individual issues published from 1886 to the present.

The Benson Ford Research Center of The Henry Ford requests $121,657 for a 16-month project to catalog approximately 800 land transport serial titles housed in the Benson Ford Research Center and provide universal access to this nationally significant collection. The 800 titles include 51,000 individual items, of which 35,700 are unbound single issues. There are four primary objectives: 1) catalog the Benson Ford Research Center?s nationally significant land transport serials collection, 2) create international online access to the serials collection, 3) establish consistent and clearly defined local processes for serials cataloging (that will be eventually be applied to the remaining serials collection); and 4) clean, rehouse and evaluate the preservation needs of the land transport serials collection, including possible future digitization, to prepare them for increased use as primary sources.
