Digitization Update May 2016

Tuesday, May 31, 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 started working in the digital library this month. They are learning every stage of the publication process for items.

As of the end of May 2016, we have 51,230 items cataloged. Of this number, 44,910 items have been reviewed for accuracy and completeness, and 38,731 have gone through copyright review. There are now 35,913 items available for use in the Theodore Roosevelt Digital Library.
