Investigator: Sarah Kennedy, Mann Library

Preservation Fund, 2018

This project aims to digitize a number of important rare and non-circulating items related to cider production, pomology, and orchard management housed within Mann Library. There has been increased interest in these materials by researchers and hobbyists, as well as those in the rapidly growing cider industry. Cornell has long been a leader in the field of pomology, and access to these materials will facilitate further teaching, research, and outreach.
