Grant will preserve historic engineering projects

From January 2017 through November 2018, UI theses pertaining to public works projects in Iowa will be digitized and made available in Iowa Research Online ( In addition to text, the theses contain a variety of media, such as blueprints, Van Dyke prints, photographs and watercolor and pen drawings. This project will reconnect these documents with Iowa communities where the projects came to fruition while preserving this scholarship for future use.
