From the Atla Digital Library:
We are pleased to welcome the PALNI Last Copies project as the newest addition to the Atla Digital Library! The project, officially known as Collaboratively Preserving Rare Scholarship in Religiously Affiliated Libraries: PALNI Last Copies, is an open access digital library collection of over 400 unique-in-Indiana monographs, focusing on religion and theology subject matter. The 22 collections that make up the Last Copies project include titles from the 1810s to the 1920s in twelve languages. Common subjects are hymns, doctrinal theology, and the Bible.
Through this project, the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana (PALNI) partnered with Internet Archive to provide digital access to rare monographs from 22 PALNI partner institutions. This project was made possible by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant that was awarded through the Indiana State Library.
PALNI and Atla are pleased to collaborate to include this important collection in the Atla Digital Library in order to increase discoverability of these items and to place them in context with other religion and theology content.
