Abstract

This project, sponsored by the American Antiquarian Society, improved an existing index for early scientific illustrations. The project created a webpage to access an existing database which contains information on illustrations from the early volumes of Scientific American. The project also updated the database to include new features, corrected issues with the previous data, added Volume 1 to the database and explored how useful the database might be for researchers studying inventions and technology from the mid 1800's.
