The Ad*Access Project, generously funded by the Duke Endowment "Library 2000" fund, is the result of teamwork and coordination between two centers at the Duke University David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
The advertising materials are part of the John W. Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising & Marketing History; the staff of the Hartman Center provided selection, subject and processing information. The Digital Scriptorium staff dealt with the digitization of the ads, file management, image and data conversion, and placement on the web.
