Digitization Update June 2016

Thursday, June 30, 2016

Cataloging processes continue at the Theodore Roosevelt Center. Staff members are making progress on cataloging items related to the first term of President Roosevelt's presidency. Volunteers also continue to work in the digital library. Copyright review continues on items that TR himself wrote, providing good material for our Quote of the Day.

Eight interns from around the country continue to work in the digital library this month. They are learning every stage of the publication process for items. This month they focused on cataloging items from the Fritz R. Gordner Collection.

As of the end of June 2016, we have 52,262 items cataloged. Of this number, 45,886 items have been reviewed for accuracy and completeness, and 39,818 have gone through copyright review. There are now 37,018 items available for use in the Theodore Roosevelt Digital Library.
