In keeping with the mission of the Pitts Theology Library to make its collections available for Emory and the wider scholarly community, several projects have been undertaken to take selected materials from special collections and make them available in electronic form on the World Wide Web. Most of the print materials involved date from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries.
Images are scanned at very high resolution in 8 bit gray-scale. After manipulation these images are converted into bi-tonal images in both jpeg (thumbnail and original size) and pdf format. The pdf technology makes the images much more adaptable for classroom use; one can zoom in and out of the image to bring out details of interest.
