Mellon Foundation. New technologies and methods of analysis enable new interpretations of our unique books, maps, manuscripts, photographs, sound recordings, and drawings - the rich array of human expression - and also assist in preserving those sources. Technologies such as hyperspectral imaging, handheld x-ray fluorescence, Raman spectroscopy, X-Ray diffraction and environmental scanning electron and other high resolution microscopy use new forms of non-destructive testing to reveal hidden or obscured information on objects; shed new light on techniques of document and object construction; and permit a more rigorous approach to scholarly questions concerning influence, provenance and intent. CLIR seeks proposals from applicants whose dissertation projects will benefit from the opportunity to examine original sources using the entire array of new technologies and equipment available at the Library of Congress.
