The personal libraries of renowned German philologists, Wilhelm Dittenberger and Johannes Vahlen, purchased by Professor W.A. Oldfather in the early 20th century, are the very core of the University of Illinois' Classics Library's collection. While the bulk of the collection has been cataloged and even microfilmed and digitized, there are still a significant number of unbound dissertations, reprints of articles, and program publications that can only be located with the aid of a small card catalog within the library. Last year, the Classics Library began working with the library's Content Access Management, Digital Content Creation, and Preservation departments to catalog and digitize this collection of Universitätsschriften and other short scholarly works on Latin and Greek literature. will talk about this process and some of the efforts to promote it.
