F&M Fraktur Collection Being Digitized!

The F&M College Library is in the process of digitizing its Unger-Bassler Frakturschriften Collection. As a member of the NITLE DSpace Pilot Service, F&M has been using a shared instance of DSpace software to describe and present its 513 piece collection of hand-drawn and printed geburts und taufschein (birth and baptismal certificates), haus segen (house blessings), vorschrift (writing specimens), bucherzeichen (book plates), family registers, confirmation certificates, and drawings/sketches.

Please view the collection Finding Aid or visit the digital colllection directly at F&M Scholars Square
