[Metro SIG Meeting] Historical Corporate Annual Reports Digitization Project

cover

This Wednesday, June 8 2016, Watson Library’s Interim Head Jeremiah Trinidad-Christensen was invited to make a presentation at the Metro’s Economics and Business Librarians SIG meeting about the Historical Corporate Annual Reports Digitization Project in Watson Library.

Jeremiah provided an excellent summary of this widely-used digitization project, which was conducted by a group of Watson Library staff, led by our Collection Development Librarian Yasmin Saira from 2007 to 2009. The audiences were hugely intrigued by the fascinating stories Jeremiah extracted from these reports; everyone was also amazed at the visualization he created in the end, using one of the historical NYC maps:
