CRL: Mining Serials Reformatting Data for Preservation

A Tier I investigation of bibliographic data for approximately 20,000 humanities serial publications preserved on microfilm and in digital form, to determine how such information could best be combined with the Print Archives Preservation Registry (PAPR) to facilitate acquisition and preservation decisions in libraries.

The Center for Research Libraries seeks NEH Research and Development Tier I funding for the planning phase of a major effort to mine the records of historical print serials reformatted through major humanities preservation microfilming programs and digitization efforts. During the planning phase, CRL will assemble from a variety of sources a testbed of bibliographic records, holdings information, and other documentation on an estimated 20,000 journals reformatted over the last fifty years by libraries and trustworthy publishers. CRL will assess the quality and reliability of records and information related to these reformatted serials, and will determine the extent to which the acquired information can be integrated with other existing data on print serials in the Print Archives Preservation Registry (PAPR). Finally, CRL will test the applicability of that information to library decisions on preservation and maintenance of print serial collections.
