The Hilgardia Project, launched in April 2011 to bring the classic UC publication to the Web, has received $26,550 in donations and pledges and is nearing its fundraising goal of $30,000. The project's first phase — preparing the Wine and Grape Collection for posting online — is under way.

For 70 years, until publication ceased in 1995, Hilgardia was the primary technical publication of UC Agriculture and Natural Resources. The archive includes classic research in agricultural, environmental and nutritional sciences, content that is still widely cited and valuable to industry and scholars.

At present, Hilgardia has virtually no online presence, and half of published issues are out of print. The rest are paperbound, subject to wear and tear. When digitized, these works will be posted on a sister site to California Agriculture journal and become freely available to scholarly and lay readers.

To make a donation or for more information, write to calag@ucdavis.edu , e-mail Deborah Golino at dagolino@ucdavis.edu or go to http://californiaagriculture.ucanr.edu/hilgardia.cfm .
