190515 YBs High School Yearbook Scanning Project
EssexOA and KentOA are scanning high school yearbooks to preserve the books and information for future generations. The searchable documents will make it easier for the OA researcher to assist family historians with their research. The yearbooks are scanned at the Leddy Library, U of Windsor, and will be archived on the SWODA, WPL, and OA servers.
The enclosed MS excel worksheet dated May 15 2019 lists the High School yearbooks scanned, which is approx 507 as of Mid May 2019 – click link for excel worksheet 190515 YBs . The yearbooks listed with a H or WPL indicates the books are scheduled to be scanned (300 books). A red colour or blank space indicates that we are searching for that yearbook for preservation. We would welcome scanning a copy for you or arranging for you to assist with the scanning process, if you have time. Contact David at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for yearbook pickup. All yearbooks will be returned with a searchable digital copy for your personal files (due to copyright and privacy concerns do not distribute). Most Ambassador yearbooks are scanned and available at uwindsor.ca/swoda publications.
If you are cleaning out an attic and want to donate (or lend) yearbooks, please contact us at email@example.com .
