Historical Note

In the early 1960s, the medical libraries at Harvard, Columbia, and Yale Universities received a National Science Foundation Grant to computerize their library catalogs. More information: President's report, 1963-1964. Heading up this transition to an automated system was new library director Ralph T. Esterquest, who was also charged with planning for a new building to house the library collections. More information: President's report, 1957-1958.
