Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center,

To honor the memory of Rutherford B. Hayes, nineteenth President of the United States, the Hayes family established the first presidential library in the United States and the only one devoted to a nineteenth century President. Opened in 1916, the institution collects and preserves written and visual materials that document the legal, political, and military career as well as the personal life and interests of Rutherford B. Hayes.

Archaeological Atlas of Ohio,

This resource, Archaeological Atlas of Ohio, by William C. Mills, was digitized at the request of the Geology library and Geology professors at the Ohio State University who desired a scan of this oversize book for preservation purposes, and the ability to zoom in to see minute detail. It contains approximately 90 maps and 180 pages describing the maps. The maps were published in 1914 and are still quite popular for historical research.

Greek & Latin Inscriptions,

Greek and Latin Inscriptions is a collection of digitized squeezes (accurate paper impressions) of inscriptions from Greece, Italy, and Macedonia. The squeezes were contributed by the Center for Epigraphical and Palaeographical Studies at The Ohio State University, whose purpose is to foster the study of inscriptions and manuscripts and promote research opportunities for those interested in these primary sources of information about the ancient and mediaeval world.

Sanborn Historic Maps,

Sanborn Historic Maps are large scale street plans produced by the Sanborn Fire Insurance company from 1867 to 1970. These maps are heavily used in both public and academic libraries by a wide range of researchers including local historians to locate and identify buildings and neighborhoods, urban historians to study the growth of towns and cities, and environmentalists concerned about impact of new developments.
