    Abstract:
    The George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida request $39,246 to support assessment, and planning activities that will leverage expertise from a mix of professional domains. In partnership with the Libraries, the following French Pamphlet Planning Project partners agree to work together towards collaborative data collection, analysis and the establishment of standards, workflows and project goals: the Center for Research Libraries, institutional members of the Collaborative Initiative for French Language Collections, University of Michigan, Brigham Young University, Stanford, Yale, Johns Hopkins University, University of Alabama, University of Kansas, the Newberry and the National Library of France. Partners agree the proposed 12-month (May 2013 – April 2014) planning project will yield important collection access outcomes.
    Notes:
    A 12-month planning project that will engage multiple partnering institutions -- including the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Brigham Young University, Brown University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, the Newberry Library, and others -- to conduct an initial analysis of pamphlet collections published during the French Revolution era (1780-1810). The systematic identification and organization of corresponding data sources, item descriptions and online collection content would improve the overall discoverability of all pamphlet collections and contribute to the preliminary planning of a French Pamphlet Digital Portal.
