New IMLS-funded project: Opening access to 20th century public domain serials

Read the full post from Everybody’s Libraries.

I’m happy to report that over the next year, I and others at Penn will be working on a project that the Institute of Museum and Library Services has just funded to help open access to the vast public domain of 20th century serials.  We’ll be developing and demonstrating data sets and procedures to make it much easier to verify public domain status for content in scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, and special interest periodicals published in the United States.  We hope that all kinds of libraries can take advantage of the resources we provide to make materials like this in their collections available online to all, and digitally preserve them for posterity.

In order to move toward more sustainable practices, industrial managers need to understand what cultural, environmental, and economic challenges exist, and how to respond to them. PennTAP will review the link between sustainability and energy efficiency projects, and highlight the process to develop a carbon footprint, set a reduction goal, and implement projects to reduce your carbon footprint. We will also discuss methods to publicize the sustainability improvements at your facility.
