Three Midwest Univesities Begin Adding Bibliographic Data to English Short Title Catalogue (ESTC)
Graduate student Andrew Keener has launched a project to report the historic works to the English Short Title Catalogue, a database that lists materials published between 1473 and 1800.
This initiative is one of the Global Midwest Projects within the larger Humanities Without Walls consortium. The project seeks to make the resources that Midwestern universities have to offer readily apparent.
The initiative is spreading to the University of Wisconsin and the University of Iowa, both of which will begin to report their oldest tomes to the database this fall.
