Approximately 200 reformatted books from the University Library's collections are now available online. These books were originally scanned as part of the Preservation Department’s reformatting process. The process created print facsimiles (available in the stacks) and the scans are now available online. Sixty-five books are restricted to the Yale community because of copyright dates or other intellectual property issues.
The books are in a variety of languages and subjects. Some have images and others are simply black and white text. Each book is full text searchable within the system, so readers can search across all the reformatted books or within a specific book.
Links to these books will be available in Orbis once permanent links become available for them. They will also soon be available when searching the digital collections cross search from the Digital Collections page on the Library's homepage, www.library.yale.edu.
Reformatted books that have no access restrictions are available here.
Reformatted books available to the Yale community only are available here.
