Preservation Microfilming of The New York Public Library's Collection on the United States Banking and Finance Industry

The preservation microfilming of 4,000 deteriorating volumes on the history of banking and finance in the United States published from 1800 to 1950.

The New York Public Library requests $700,000 in funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to preserve materials from its significant and unique collections on the United States banking and finance industry. The proposed project will preserve 8,000 monographs, published between the late-18th century and the mid-20th century, that are endangered by rapid deterioration. The project will produce approximately 1.2 million frames of microfilm over two years, preserving 2.4 million pages of text. The project will build upon eight other Brittle Books projects at The New York Public Library, funded by the NEH, beginning in 1989 and continuing to the present.
