    Using digitized primary source materials involves fundamental shifts in the service and teaching methods of curators, librarians, and teachers, regardless of their audiences. This project seeks to develop a successful model program to integrate digital primary source materials into K-12 curriculum and assignments, as well as into the educational programs of museums and libraries. This project brings together a group of libraries and museums and their digital content with K-12 teachers, to identify reliable methods of integrating digitized content into teaching units and learning guides, to demonstrate innovative technology-based applications using these materials, and to evaluate and report on their effectiveness. Collection size: approximately 1600 items.

  • Translation with emendations of Opus galli anonymi by Sir Isaac Newton
    Rare Book & Manuscript Library  ·   Digital Special Collections
    Description
    Newton's manuscript translation of an anonymous French work detailing the creation of the philosopher's stone. His inscription on front wrapper below title 'Opus galli anonymi' indicates that the procedures described in the text are similar to that of the French alchemical physician Pierre-Jean Fabre in his work L'abregé des secrets chymiques. No comparable source text is known, however. Newton's heavy emendations and corrections suggest that he was not merely transcribing, but extemporaneously creating an original translation from the French text, possibly with his own interpretations and elucidations.
