The Federal Depository Library Program just announced that the Digitization Projects Registry is now available! “The what?” you may ask. The Digitization Projects Registry is an inventory of digitization projects undertaken by libraries, U. S. Government agencies, and non-profit institutions. What this means is that Historical U.S. Government publications that were previously only available in print format are now freely available online to anyone!
Just a few examples of what you can find through this registry:
- Federal Newsmaps from World War II
- Statistical Abstract of the U.S. from 1878-1949
- Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States (Presidents Hoover through Clinton)
- The Everglades Digital Library and America’s Swamp: the Historical Everglades Project
- So much more!
You’ll find reports, surveys, statistics, photos, maps, and more that cover all manner of subjects. It’s a great resource and it’s now so easy to access, so go ahead and take a look!
