Summary

"The University of Oklahoma has digitized the title pages of 8,300 books in the History of Science Collections. Many of these books are rare and/or fragile. The purpose of the digitization project was to offer author/title access to all the items in the History of Science Collections, a small portion of which had not yet been cataloged. It also allows scholars the opportunity to study printer's devices, author's autographs and other provenance which occur on these title pages. Access to the Collections is now available for all materials through the letter P of their classification scheme in materials from the 15th century through the current year. However, some materials from the 18th century onward have been scanned through the letter X. Plans for completion of the title page project are in progress."
