The Badian Roman Coins Portal

The Roman Coins portal is a collaborative effort to bring fully into the digital realm Rutgers' Ernst Badian Collection of Roman Republican Coins, and to contextualize its 1200+ items in such a way that a broad section of the public can readily understand general patterns of development in Roman money in its first 250 years and to study the many individual objects for this period that hold historic, economic or artistic interest. These coins form one of the largest collections of its type in North America and the Coins portal provides comprehensive digital access for study and teaching. The coins, with their rich multidimensional images and metadata incorporating the notes of Badian will be used in courses in classics, history, art history and economics, enabling students and faculty to contribute stories that will build a rich corpus of numismatic scholarship.

China Boom Project Video Archive

About 100 individuals provide their answers to the question, "Why did China boom?" in full-length videos deposited into the China Boom Project Video Archive. These individuals, many of them with considerable expertise on issues related to contemporary China, were interviewed by the China Boom Project staffers of Asia Society from 2008 to 2010. The Archive is a valuable resource on China for educators and researchers in a wide range of academic fields, such as business, economics, sociology, and history. http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/rul/projects/china_boom/index.php.

Authors represented include Aristotle, Boethius, Epictetus, Galen and Plato. Some less famous works are included. Full text searching can be done across the entire collection for those texts that are in English.

President's Committee for Hungarian Refugee Relief

President Eisenhower appointed a committee to help resettle refugees from the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Between November 1956 and April 1957, 32,000 refugees came through Camp Kilmer, NJ (now on the Livingston Campus of Rutgers) and found new homes and jobs in the US through the work of the Committee. After his service as Chair, Voorhees took home two boxes of its records and these eventually came to Rutgers with the rest of his papers. The records include correspondence, statistics, and newspaper clippings that document the planning, procedures, and results of refugee processing.

Ralston Horse Behavior Research Search Portal

The Rutgers University Young Horse Teaching & Research Program videos were produced for research and classroom use, and include records of standardized temperament tests, veterinary care, and general behaviors for two "non-traditional" types of horses for which there is a dearth of data: draft horse crosses and Bureau of Land Management mustangs. The Program's research focus is on the nutritional requirements of young horses, and relationships between nutrition and behavior for these less-studied breeds; the Program also provides 30 students a year with a unique opportunity to train and handle young horses; each student has charge of a horse, and logs behaviors and other data for that horse throughout the course. Research data has been the basis of several honors theses. For more information about the Program, see http://www.rci.rutgers.edu/~ruhorse/index.html.

Rutgers University Yearbooks

Beginning with The Scarlet Letter, first published by Rutgers fraternities in 1871 and providing a list of fraternity members and a catalog of officers and students, Rutgers University colleges and campuses published yearbooks throughout the twentieth century and some into the twenty-first. The Scarlet Letter is only one of the Rutgers University yearbooks. The Newark and Camden campuses along with other New Brunswick campus colleges (including Douglass, Livingston, Cook, and University College), also produced yearbooks throughout the twentieth century and some into the twenty-first. These yearbooks provide invaluable glimpses into student life over the years. The photographs, design elements, and names of clubs and organizations all tell a story. The Libraries are seeking funding to complete this massive digitization effort. To view the yearbooks and share your memories, see http://yearbooks.libraries.rutgers.edu/.
