ASU Book Traces Project
Our project seeks to identify, record, and photograph significant, unique features of C19 and early C20 readership found in out-of-copyright ASU-owned books. To begin, we're examining pre-1923 titles in the PRs and the PSs in Hayden Library. (There are 13,673 pre-1923 books on the shelves in the PR and PS--British and American literature--sections.) This ASU Digital Repository space will collect digital images of the most interesting of these examples. We will also be sharing some of them with the University of Virginia-based crowd-sourced project founded and led by Prof. Andrew Stauffer, from which we take our project name and our inspiration: http://booktraces.org. We hope to locate objects for a potential future ASU special exhibit in 2019, when Hayden Library re-opens after its major renovation. (The books are leaving the tower in summer 2017.)
