The microfilm indexes originally housed in 406 Ellis Library (Special Collections & Rare Books area) have now been moved to range 138-139 in 2 East and show a display label in the WebPac of “MU Ellis Special Collections Microfilm Indexes – Ask at a service desk.” Here is an example: http://merlin.mobius.umsystem.edu/record=b1023521~S8. I’m working on updating the check in records. We also found nearly two shelves of un-barcoded materials when scanning this collection. We will be working on adding these to our collection and then having a complete list to share with selectors for review in the near future. Thanks everyone for your attention with this project.
Many of you have been helping with this project in one way or another for years, so I wanted to be sure to let you know that my co-editor (and former PhD student) Crystal Lake and I received a three-year NEH Scholarly Editions grant to complete our digital edition of Vetusta Monumenta. So many librarians have generously helped us with this project since 2012. (The librarians are Anne Barker, Kelli Hansen, Alla Barabtarlo, and Michael Holland.)
So far at MU only my department has taken notice of this publicly:
Crystal’s university published a really nice piece, however:
And the most important link of all: http://vetustamonumenta.org
We look forward to three more years of collaboration on this project!
All best, Noah Heringman
