UC faculty and staff are spearheading an effort to scan and digitize Hilgardia, the primary technical publication of UC Agriculture and Natural Resources for 70 years.

Although production ceased in 1995, Hilgardia includes classic editions that formed the cornerstones of agricultural, environmental and nutritional research. The journal is still widely cited in scientific literature.

Despite its distinguished past, Hilgardia has virtually no web presence, and one-half of published issues (including the first 24 volumes and 58 other editions) are now out of print. The remaining paperbound journals are subject to physical degradation.

The committee's goal is to raise $30,000 for scanning and digitization. The Hilgardia monographs will then be posted online, freely available to scholarly and lay readers worldwide.
