Digitizing the Lapidus Collection

| No Comments
An earlier post announced the donation from Sid Lapidus of more than 150 books and pamphlets on the theme of Liberty and the American Revolution. 

During the past eleven months, the Library has digitized all items in the gift -- more than 31,600 page images. We now announce two results of that project:

1. At the Princeton University Digital Library (PUDL) you will find the Lapidus books and pamphlets digitized in full.  ("Search" helps you locate items in the collection. Once an item is found, page turning software facilitates browsing and reading.)

2. The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History has just posted a new teaching resource based on selections from the Lapidus digital books.

These projects are the result of a large number of people working together. Working with me at Princeton, thanks go to: Cliff Wulfman, Roel Munoz, Jennifer Cabral-Pierce, Mary Marrero, Don Thornbury, Jen Meyer, Jon Stroop, and Shaun Ellis. 

At Gilder Lehrman, James Basker, Susan Saidenberg, her staff, as well as others, worked with files provided by Princeton to build the teaching resource.
  
And, of course, thanks goes to Sid Lapidus for his donations and encouragement.
