“Soundings” newsletter now online back to 1980

With the permission of the Monterey Chapter of the American Cetacean Society, the Miller Library at Hopkins Marine Station scanned its print copies of the organizations Soundings newsletter to create a digital archive of searchable PDF files.  These files have been deposited into the Aquatic Commons digital archive and are available and fully searchable at the URL http://aquacomm.fcla.edu/.

One feature of this monthly newsletter is a section called “Sighting” which provides a record of marine mammals observed in Monterey Bay for the month.  Sightings are listed by date, time, and number of each species — a potentially useful data set.

While the library’s holdings were relatively complete, there were some missing issues.  Alan & Sheila Baldridge helped locate many of the missing issues, but there are still a few that were not found.  A list of the remaining gaps is below.  If anyone has one or more of these issues, the library would appreciate borrowing them in order to make digital copies to complete the archive.  Please contact Joe Wible at wible@stanford.edu or 831-655-6228.
