Digital Collections at UVM
Several groups within UVM are developing digital collections. Here are a few.
|UVM dSpace Server
Collections created by faculty for classroom and general use. Currently contains Geology, History, Plant and Soil Science, and other collections.
|Landscape Change Program
The Landscape Change Program is an archive of paired historic and recent photos of Vermont landscapes. The program is funded by the National Science Foundation to digitally document how the Vermont landscape has changed over time." It includes thousands of images, and additional teaching and research resources.
|Vermont Eugenics: A Documentary History
A collection of over two hundred full text documents and images from the eugenics era in Vermont. Provides an illustrated historical guide to the topic along with transcriptions of over 200 primary documents.
Museum Collections Digitization Project
The Project plans to create a complete online catalog of the Museum's holdings. It is currently building the catalog, and capturing digital images of the collections. Ultimately, these images and information about the collections will be made available via the Web.
Museum Digital Image Archive
This archive was created to enhance research and educational access to the Perkins Geology Museum collection. When completed, the database will contain over 40,000 images from the museum’s collection, including:fossil, rock, and mineral specimens, thin-sections and 35mm slides, maps, photographs, and soil cores.
|George Perkins Marsh Online Research Center (at the UVM Center for Digital Initiatives)
When Man and Nature was published in 1864 it was immediately hailed as a major contribution to the field of physical geography. Its author, George Perkins Marsh, was one of the first to recognize and described in detail the significance of human action in transforming the natural world. The George Perkins Marsh Research Center provides access to transcriptions and images of selected letters in Marsh's correspondence.
|Electronic Text Collections (currently not available)
Our first electronic text collection was housed on an SGML server funded by a grant from the DynaWeb Corp. These collections included volumes of the 19th century magazine, Godey's Lady's Book, as well as other historical documents. These collections may be redeveloped in future and housed at other locations.
