Congratulations to LTA Award Recipients
The NN/LM SCR is pleased to announce the two recipients of the Year 03 Library Technology Award:
Ochsner Health System Medical Library & Archives
Principal Investigator: Nital Sheridan
Project title: History of Medicine in New Orleans: A Digital Collection
Brief description: The focus of this project is to perform digital preservation of selected materials from archives of the Ochsner Medical Library & Archives. Materials include publications, photographs, institutional records, and personal papers, which chronicle the growth of the medical field in New Orleans. Digitization will prevent deterioration and improve access by enabling easier distribution and access from multiple locations. Materials will be digitized externally, and the Ochsner librarians will create a web interface that brings these materials to the public, documenting over 80 years of medical history in New Orleans.
Texas A&M University and Oklahoma State University Library
Co- Principal Investigators: Esther Carrigan and Heather Moberly
Project title: A Proposal for the Digitization and Preservation of a Key Historical Resource in Human and Animal Medicine: The Index-Catalogue of Medical and Veterinary Zoology
Brief description: This project is a collaborative effort between Texas A&M Medical Sciences Library and Oklahoma State University Library to digitize the Index-Catalogue of Medical and Veterinary Zoology, which will greatly increase accessibility to its contents. By working together on this collaborative project the two institutions will have complete holdings of the publication for digitization. The finished product will reside in the institutional repositories of both institutions to ensure availability and long-term preservation.
Congratulations to Nital, Esther, and Heather!
