Hidden in Plain Sight: Book Traces @ UVA, a CLIR Hidden Collections Project

From the archives…

Book Traces @ UVA was a large-scale project to find and record historical readers’ interventions in the circulating collections of the University of Virginia Library, focusing on volumes published before 1923. The project started in early 2015 and officially concluded at the end of June 2017. Based on the ongoing Book Traces initiative (http://booktraces.org), this project aimed to develop a protocol for the discovery and cataloguing of uniquely-modified volumes in the stacks while also gathering data regarding the nature and distribution of such modifications.
