> related to mathematics, science, and technology.  In April 2011 the
> Schoenbergs announced a formal agreement with the University of

> By the end of 2012 facsimiles for the entire Lawrence J. Schoenberg
> Collection will appear on *Penn in Hand*, yielding over 1,400 entries
> for European manuscripts dated before 1601.  The site allows several
> levels of magnification, single-page as well as opening views, and both
> keyword and faceted searching; it includes tables of contents when
> appropriate, as well as direct links to illustrations.
