Ninth Atmospheric Science Librarians International Conference: Atmospheric Sciences Libraries and Their Importance for Patrons


Imaging Project and Bibliography of IPY Material

Doria B. Grimes, NOAA Central Library, Silver Spring, MD

To assist planners and participants of the Fourth International Polar Year in 2007, NOAA Central Library staff imaged and compiled an online bibliography with links to polar exploration and related resources from its historical collections. The First International Polar Year was in 1882-1883 which fostered a number of significant arctic expeditions such as the Greely Arctic Expedition from 1881-1884, the cruise of the revenue marine steamer Corwin in 1884-1885, and the Norwegian "Fram" Expedition in 1898-1902. This resource is a multimedia collection of full text, digital videos, online cruise data and Web resources. .
