In 1996, the Penn Libraries launched SCETI with financial support from Larry Schoenberg (C'53, WG'56) and his wife Barbara Brizdle, both members of the Libraries' Board of Overseers. Today SCETI provides a wealth of digital editions, from Shakespeare's First Folio to an annotated version of Theodore Dreiser's Russian Diary. There are 13th-century Arabic manuscripts on anatomy, historical papers from the Civil War, sound clips of Marian Anderson, recordings of Yiddish folk singers, online tutorials, multimedia exhibits - some 79,000 graphical and sound files in all that document 1,500 years of human culture. Each day, academic specialists and amateur scholars around the globe view more than 10,000 scanned pages using the SCETI websource.
