Historical Texts Collection : History Department : Hanover College The Hanover Historical Texts Collection makes available digital versions of historical texts for use in history and humanities courses. Search by keyword, or browse by subject heading. The faculty and students of the Hanover College History Department initiated the Hanover Historical Texts Project in 1995, at a time when few primary sources were available outside of published anthologies. To make primary texts readily available for classroom use, they selected important documents, scanned print versions that were out of copyright, converted the scans into HTML format, proofread the resulting documents to correct OCR errors, edited them to provide page breaks, page numbers, and bibliographical information, and posted them online. Most of the texts in the Hanover Historical Texts Collection are in public domain. Bibliographical information and acknowledgements for scanning, conversion into html, and proofreading are found at the beginning of each text. Ancient Greece and Rome Modern Europe

Charles Darwin’s Library Annotated books are principally at Cambridge University Library and the remainder are displayed at Down House. In 1875, a Catalogue of Darwin’s scientific books at Down House was compiled by Thomas W. Serials Darwin’s library contains a large collection of pamphlets (off prints & reprints) as well as bound and unbound runs of scientific journals. Systematic notes abstracting the points of interest in numerous scientific books and journals.
