Microfilming is done in accordance with all ANSI/AIIM standards to produce film with a life-expectancy rating of 500 years. All master negatives are stored in a vault at the State Department of Archives and History in Atlanta. The UGA Libraries retain a copy negative for reproduction purposes (located within the Georgia Newspaper Project) and a use copy for the public, which is located in the basement of the Main Library.

    Miriam Y. Holden Collection

    A generation ago, long before women's studies became a burning issue, Miriam Holden had already amassed one of the country's great private libraries on the history of women. In 1960, she noted in a speech to fellow bibliophiles that "throughout the ages men have recorded with care the achievements of men, and yet kept all too few records of the story of women." She found this to be true, she said, when her son brought home his American history text. “The whole book contained only one mention of a woman. There was a picture of Dolly Madison with the caption; she was the charming wife of a president.” And so, "to reveal women's part in the making of long history," she assembled a remarkable collection of books periodicals, manuscripts, clippings, photographs, cartoons, letters, and other materials about women and their achievements. After her death in 1977, her husband, Arthur C. Holden '12, presented this trove of 6,000 volumes to Princeton. Find out more: https://library.princeton.edu/collections/miriam-y-holden-collection
