- The Baldwin curator is planning to submit an NEH grant proposal to digitize already cataloged pre-1850 Baldwin titles.
UFDC titles added to WorldCat via OCLC's Digital Gateway have been removed. The ingest process created numerous duplicates because the titles are included in multiple UFDC collections. An alternative ingest method has not been identified at this point.
