|Description||The Cornell Historic Math Monograph Collection consists of digital surrogates for materials that were part of a joint study involving Digital Preservation between Cornell University and the Xerox Corporation.
Begun in 1990; a process was developed where brittle and decaying books were digitally scanned; using prototype equipment co-developed by Cornell and the Xerox Corporation (the CLASS scanner) and stored as 600dpi; bitonal TIFF images; compressed with ITU Group 4 compression; on digital platters on an EPOCH "jukebox" digital server.
Facsimiles of these books were generated and the books were returned to the shelves.
