Harvard Law School Library Launches Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Digital Suite, Featuring Discovery Tech Developed By Harvard Library Lab
The Harvard Law School Library is pleased to announce the release of the Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Digital Suite. The Suite is comprised of five manuscript collections as well as three image groups. Every attempt was made to digitize as much of each collection as possible and only a small percentage of the Library’s Holmes primary material that was not digitized.
The key component of the OWH, Jr. Suite is the discovery environment developed by the Library’s Digital Lab and called 3D (Discovery and Delivery of Digital collections). 3D enables a person to search and browse across all eight collections in the Suite from one access point. A search of the over 100,000 digitized documents and over 1,000 images can also be easily refined by the site’s faceted search functions.
