Announced to the CONTENTdm-listserve this week:
The University of the Pacific Library is home to the papers of John Muir, who as a famed naturalist writer, founder of the Sierra Club, and forefather of the environmental movement, is a significant figure in California and American history. Digital images of all of John Muir's journals and drawings in the Library's Special Collections are now accessible online. The journals consist of 78 volumes and over 7,000 pages written between 1867 and 1913. The drawings consist of 371 images. The journals in particular demonstrate the usefulness of creating additional zoom levels in CONTENTdm.
Just another example of the power digitization has to free content for a larger audience. Enjoy!
