Pan Am Digital Collection

Thanks to a digitization grant awarded in 2016 by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the University of Miami Libraries was able to digitize the Printed Materials Series.  This series is comprised of 60 boxes of materials which contain brochures, directories, annual reports, timetables, and periodicals.  An additional digitization grant from Council on Library & Information Resources (CLIR) enabled the library to digitize even more materials from the collection including the Flights & Routes series, Speeches & Addresses, Press Releases, and Company Histories. UML's new digital collection is full-text searchable and publicly available.


Additionally, UML photographed nearly 500 cultural artifacts for HistoryMiami Museum (HMM) and hosts the new HMM Pan American World Airways Digital Collection.  These collections are nicely complimented by the Pan American World Airways Advertisements collection created by Duke University who was also part of the CLIR grant.  Together, the three institutions collaborated to create the world's first commercial aviation portal in the Digital Public Library of America, which contains all of these collections together alongside even more aviation materials from other institutions across America.
