Cataloging and Creating Digital Access to American and British Children's Literature, 1890 to 1910

Cataloging 7,500 American and British titles in children's literature published between 1890 and 1910 and providing online access to 2,500 titles containing color illustrations.

This two year project (July 2007-June 2009) will catalogue and digitize titles from the University of Florida's Baldwin Library of Historical Children's Literature published from 1890 through 1910. The Baldwin Library is one of the largest collections of English-language children's literature in the world. It contains approximately 100,000 volumes published in Great Britain and the United States between 1656 and 2006. Of the 7,500 books to be cataloged in the selected date range, about half will be original records, indicating that the Baldwin Library holds the only known copy. The digitization portion will make over 2,500 of these historical books available to a wide audience of researchers, students, teachers, home schoolers and other people interested in children's literature via the internet.
