The CHP is launching a new project, and we need your help! Dr. Robert H. Wozniak donated hundreds of books to the CHP; many of these books are rare, antiquarian, and written in a foreign language. These books are really amazing and document the history of psychology throughout the world. Because of their age and translation issues, these books can be difficult to include in the traditional library catalog.

This German language book, Grundlegung zur Psychologie, published in 1817, is one of the titles from the Wozniak Collection of Books.

The difficulties with cataloging won’t stop the CHP from providing access though! The title page, publisher information, and table of contents have been scanned and the images are included into CONTENTdm. Take a look at the scans and browse the collection: Professor Robert H. Wozniak Collection of Books on the History of Psychology.

How can you help? By translating the titles, table of contents, and other information from the scanned pages.  At the bottom of each record, there is an area for “Comments”.  Add your translations here; don’t forget to include your name.  This will help make the book findable to researchers. More books are added weekly throughout the summer, so check back often.
