The Digital Scriptorium at Duke University's Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library is pleased to announce the availability of the Library's Dynaweb Internet Server.
Resources currently offered include:
Finding aids - Finding aids created by the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library have been encoded using Encoded Archival Description (EAD). Currently the collection of finding aids numbers 153, with more being continually added. The Library has endeavored to create richly tagged encoding which allows for searching on specific subject elements such as personal, corporate, geographic, and family names.
Guide to the Cataloged Collections in the Manuscript Department of the William R. Perkins Library, Duke University - This important means of access to the collections of the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library is offered in electronic form for the first time. The Guide was originally published in 1980 and contains information about 5991 collections acquired to that time.
Digital Image Access Project Photographs - This resource contains 1000 images which pertain to the theme of "The Urban Landscape" drawn from fourteen different collections held by the Library. The digital images were created as part of the Digital Image Access Project sponsored by the Research Libraries Group (RLG). The images, associated descriptions, access points, and administrative information have been encoded into an image database using Encoded Archival Description.
Access is through a homepage for each resource:
The Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library would like to thank INSO Corporation for the grant of their Dynatext/Dynaweb SGML publishing system.
