Thirteen Historical Websites and Counting
Room 132A (Phoenix Convention Center)
Doria B. Grimes, NOAA Central Library (Retired), Silver Spring, MD
On Oct. 1, the beginning of the new federal fiscal year, the NOAA Central Library launched its thirteenth website providing full text access to historical weather, fisheries, and oceanographic documents. These documents were created by NOAA's ancestor agencies: the U.S. Weather Bureau, the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, and the U.S. Fish Commission. They were digitally imaged at 300 dpi in black and white or in color as necessary. Information is selected from pull-down menus or transparent links by subject. This presentation will focus on online historical weather data and documents from the original U.S. Weather Bureau as well as plans for future digital projects.
