It’s a wrap!

In this image, a Libraries staff member works with a local moving company to prepare a truck of journals for shipment to the Northeast Regional Scanning Center at the Boston Public Library. The materials will be digitized by the Open Content Alliance, which runs the scanning center.

The journals in this shipment span the years 1883-1908, and include electricity related titles such as Western Electrician and Street Railway Gazette.  As the items are digitized, they will be made available online in the Internet Archive.

This shipment also included copies of working papers published by MIT’s Department of Economics. The Libraries are currently scanning over 1,100 of these papers. They are available online at DSpace@MIT.
