        Subject: Princeton launches Blue Mountain Project


The Princeton University Library is pleased to announce the launch of 
the Blue Mountain Project, an open-access digital thematic research 
collection of avant-garde art, music and literary periodicals 
(1848-1923). Drawing together rare material from Princeton92s Art, 
Music and Rare Books libraries, the Blue Mountain Project will provide 
high-quality digital images as well as full-text searching, deep 
indexing of content, detailed metadata and descriptive essays to a broad 
audience.

With generous support from the NEH, the Blue Mountain Project will make 
34 titles available over the next two years.  A full list of these 
periodicals -- which are in English, German, French, Danish, Dutch, 
Hungarian, Czech and Russian -- can be found on the Blue Mountain 
project page: http://library.princeton.edu/projects/bluemountain.

Please check the website periodically as we make the journals available, 
and visit our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/BlueMountainProject) or 
subscribe to our Twitter feed (@bmtnproj) for news and updates about 
Blue Mountain progress.

Scholars interested in using Blue Mountain materials are encouraged to 
contact us for collaboration. We will hold a conference at Princeton in 
Fall 2013, bringing together researchers, curators, librarians and 
technologists to discuss methods of research and teaching with digitized 
periodicals.

The Blue Mountain Project can be reached at: bluemntn at princeton.edu
