The Pioneers in Business Ethics Oral Video History Archive Project was created to preserve the history and wisdom of these founders, as well as the founders of the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics. The project interviewed over fifty pioneers via video and placed these interviews and their transcripts in the archives at the University of Illinois. The Pioneers in Business Ethics Oral Video History Archive Project includes videos and transcriptions of focused stories on the evolution of Business Ethics, its founding thinkers and practitioners, and the ideas, concepts, and best practices that have emerged. These materials are resources for teachers, students, and researchers at schools of business across the country and by corporate ethics officers who today populate most companies.

  • Project Unica
    Rare Book & Manuscript Library  ·   Digital Special Collections
    Description
    Project Unica is an initiative of The Rare Book & Manuscript Library of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to produce high quality digital facsimiles of printed books that exist in only one copy. The concept of a "unicum" is difficult for the average library user to understand, since printed books, by their very nature, exist in more than one copy—that's the genius of Gutenberg's invention, after all. But fate and circumstance has sometime led to the destruction of every copy, save one, of a printed book. And the University of Illinois has quite a number of absolutely unique printed books. The aim of Project Unica is to digitize these supremely rare items and to provide a simple and efficient way of getting this valuable and unique information to scholars when and where they need it. The records of the books and the digital facsimiles are also available from institution's online catalog, Illinois Harvest, and OCLC.

  • Railroad Maps
    Map Library  ·   Digital Special Collections
    Description
    The construction of railroads shaped the United States in a way that no other nation has been shaped. Charters and land grants impacted the patterns and timing of settlement and farming by emigrants. The checkerboard pattern of railroad grant lands can still be seen on maps of areas in the United States West. The fortunes and destinies of towns and villages were determined by a railroad passing through or by-passing population clusters. Towns passed by often dried up or were moved to a more optimal railroad location. The transcontinental lines, once constructed and connected, tied the East to the West in a way that was faster than horse-drawn wagons and more direct than ships sailing around Cape Horn through the Straits of Magellan. Chicago was at the heart of the United States railroad network as a connection between the eastern United States, the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River, and the western lands beyond the Mississippi. Illinois was decidedly shaped by railroads converging on Chicago but also by deliberate construction paths such as the Y created by the Illinois Central Railroad (see illustration). Railroad maps served as trip-planning tools, company advertisements, and immigrant recruiters. This collection includes railroad maps of Illinois, the United States, and North America published during the 19th and 20th centuries. Railroad lines often appear on “general” maps, some of which can be found in the Historical Maps Online collection at (https://go.library.illinois.edu/HistoricalMapsOnline). Additionally, aerial photography, indexes which can be found in the Aerial Photograph Indexes digital collection (https://go.library.illinois.edu/AirPhotoIndexMaps), are an excellent way to examine railroad structures such as roundhouses and switching yards. Please contact the Map Library regarding these items via e-mail at charts@library.illinois.edu or by calling 217-333-0827.
