initial launch of a new digital comic book collection "Treasure Chest Fun &
Fact" at http://www.aladin.wrlc.org/dl/collection/hdr?treasure

remembered by generations of parochial school students. The physical
collection is hosted at The American Catholic History Research Center and
University Archives,  Catholic University of America, a member of WRLC. The
digital collection is an ongoing project that will include fifteen of the

volumes being added as they become ready.

digital collections available at the  WRLC Libraries Digital and Special
Collections web site (http://www.aladin.wrlc.org/dl/).
