North American Imprints Program

The production and enhancement of cataloging data for 11,269 imprints published in North America before 1841, along with creation of links in catalog records to 17,796 digital reproductions of imprints available through online repositories and content providers.

This application seeks funding for support of the North American Imprints Program (NAIP). The North American Imprints Program’s overall objective is the creation of highly detailed cataloging data for United States imprints published from the beginning of American printing in 1639 through the centennial of American independence in 1876. We seek funds to continue work on the 1639-1840 segment of NAIP in several ways. With these funds we will: 1. Complete the work of enhancing 4,525 records descriptive of titles reproduced in the microform and digital Early American Imprints, Second Series, 1801-1819. 2. Significantly expand the scope of the 1820-40 segment of the NAIP file by integrating 5,544 records from the New-York Historical Society and the Library Company of Philadelphia. 3. Enhance to rare-book level 1,200 acquisition-level and brief-level records. 4. Augment the pre-1801 segment of the file by adding an estimated 17,796 links leading to digital images of the texts.
