Library of Candler School of Theology are participating with 11 other 
Southeastern universities on a microfilming project funded by the National 
Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The $500,000 awarded to Emory for its 
share of the project will enable Pitts Theology Library to reformat 
approximately 4,300 volumes in its 19th-century English religious history

and accessible to scholars on microfilm, which can last up to 500 years. 
The project began in July and will be completed in June 1997.
