How to add a Nursery/catalog to the Historical Archive
Catalogs containing Irises from the world's nurseries are welcome. Help us build this archive of Iris History. Its simple! when you create this season's catalog simple save a copy of your file as a pdf. Then e-mail the pdf to email@example.com
. Or if you wish, just send a printed version of the catalog to Robert Pries, 107 Brothers Drive, Roxboro, NC 27574.
The catalog will have its own page in the Encyclopedia Library for the world to see. The presentation will start as an attachment to the page and as time allows the page will eventually have an image of the cover and it will be integrated into the various galleries, Catalogs by decade etc. See sample gallery of about 5,700 catalogs
. The Encyclopedia and its Library are in a constant state of evolving and improving.
Printed catalogs can be sent to Robert Pries for scanning, or you can send a scan in the form of a pdf as above. Scanning is a time consuming process and do not always expect immediate results for catalogs mailed for scanning.
