New Materials Added to Stanford Digital Repository in May, 2012

In May, approximately 1,400 images representing eighteen mostly 15th and 16h century books were accessioned to the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR). These items are part of Special Collections' goal to digitize and make more accessible materials considered "Beautiful Books". John Mustain is the collection contact for the materials listed below.

All of these books were previously discoverable via SearchWorks but required a visit to Special Collections to view these non-circulating materials. Access to digitized images of these books is now available via the item’s PURL (a persistent URL which ensure that these materials are available from a single URL over the long-term, regardless of changes in file location or application technology).

Inclusion in the Stanford Digital Repository ensures that these materials are available to researchers and scholars (while upholding appropriate access restrictions), now and in the future through a secure, sustainable stewardship environment.
