 A National Preservation Program for Agricultural Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Unfortunately, the problem of deteriorating and brittle paper affects the historical agricultural literature as severely as it affects all publications of a certain age (generally post-1850) and composition.
The goal of the National Preservation Program for Agricultural Literature is to preserve in the original or in an archivally sound format -- and make readily accessible to scholars, researchers, students, and scientists -- the most important literature published before 1950 and the primary unpublished resources that together document the history of the agricultural sciences.
The core literature approach provides a means of identifying the important literature -- based both on a citation analysis to determine level of use of the literature over time and on current scholarly assessments of potential future use -- absent of any library's individual holdings.
