Thomas Lamb Eliot Papers: new digital collection!

We are pleased to announce a new RDC collection: the Thomas Lamb Eliot Papers!

T.L. Eliot (1841-1936) was an influential Unitarian minister in Portland, worked in education and jail reform, founded the Art Association and the Humane Society, helped develop the public library, worked for temperance and women’s suffrage, and played a large part in the formation and final founding of Reed College in 1911, serving as a Trustee and major advisor until his retirement in 1925. Eliot Hall was named for T.L. Eliot in 1935.

The digital collection contains scanned versions of correspondence and other documents. View a love letter sent to Eliot by his wife, Henrietta, documents issued by the Missouri Militia relating to civil war era service, and note from Eliot’s life insurance company granting him permission to travel to Oregon.

Please note, this release is only the beginning! We have finished scanning the first four boxes out of a total of 119. We will continue to add newly digitized content to this collection in small batches.

All items in this collection were digitized from the holdings of Reed College Special Collections & Archives. We welcome visitors! View the Special Collections & Archives website for hours, contact, and location information.

All digital collections now migrated to the new Reed Digital Collections!

With the successful migration of the last four collections, the new Reed Digital Collections is now the place to go for digital access to etheses, Artists’ Books, rare books and archival materials, and faculty teaching and research collections. The old system will remain available through January.

The four final collections are:

We want to hear back from you! Do you like the new interface? What could be improved? Let us know by filling out this survey.

What happens with My Workspace galleries?

Don’t worry; your galleries will still be available. Over the course of the Fall semester, galleries migrated and become visible in the new system. Gallery migration will be finalized in January 2017.

What is Reed Digital Collections, again?

Reed Digital Collections is where you will find many Reed theses in electronic form, digitized materials like yearbooks, photos, and manuscripts from Special Collections and Archives, images of art and architecture for use in the classroom, and many faculty-curated teaching and research collections. The Library and CIS have been working hard on rebuilding the software from the ground up to make it more functional, more intuitive, and more fun to work with.

Video trial – The Criterion Collection

Widely considered the best of world cinema and comprising some of the most influential works of the last century, The Criterion Collection showcases the definitive versions of seminal titles in the history of motion pictures. Features accompanying the films include HD streaming, scrolling transcripts, and shareable clips and playlists. The trial ends 9/20. Please send feedback to Jim Holmes.

New in Reed Digital Collections!

The library is happy to announce two new additions to Reed Digital Collections.

Nicholas Wheeler Physics Lectures

Nicholas Wheeler taught Physics at Reed from 1963 to 2010. Although his writings were never published, 27 volumes of his lecture notes on all the topics he taught were written out in his clear calligraphic script and bound for deposit in the Reed Library. These notes have become something of a cult classic and are still sought out by graduates of his classes. They have now been digitized and are presented in this collection for consultation and access by all.

Early Printing and Writing Collection

The Early Printing and Writing Collection consists of complete letters, documents, and manuscript books from all over Europe and several New World countries. Examples range from the early 15th century into the 20th century, with emphasis on the 16th and 17th centuries. From letters to tally books, archeological reports to war statistics, and Inquisition warrants to legal battles, these items are also of great historical interest worthy of scholarly study. They are unique and are only now available for such study.
