Finding aid and Documents online

Project Goal
148,182 Scans

finding-aidProject work begins in April 2014 and will be completed in 2017. Digitized portions of the collection are being linked to the online finding aid as they are created. To view digitized documents that have been created to date, visit the finding aid.  If you have trouble scrolling smoothly through PDFs in your browser window, try downloading a PDF then opening it in Adobe Reader, changing the scroll settings by clicking View > Page Display > Enable Scrolling.

Once completed, the Oliver Otis Howard Papers Online will present nearly 150,000 high-quality scanned images, allowing researchers from anywhere to access all of the documents and examine them in detail that rivals the experience of handling the originals.
