The Registre Imaging Project
The Rudolph Matas Library of Tulane University holds the original manuscript of the Registre du Comite Medical de la Nouvelle Orleans in the History Collection of the Library. The images linked here were provided by Preservation Resources, a division of OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. In addition to these images on the WWW, there is an archival CD of the images which were produced from microfilm in TIFF files that average 1.8 MB apiece, while the images provided for the WWW are JPEGs 120 dpi. The images were produced by grayscale scanning from the microfilm of the document. The microfilm reel is available in the library, along with a bound reproduction of the entire document produced from the microfilm. Contact the Library for further information or for help in deciphering the handwriting from the images of the index pages of the Registre.
