In the January 1994 issue of The Cornell Veterinarian editor Maurice E. White wrote:

THIS is the last issue of "The Cornell Veterinarian". The "Cornell Vet" has a proud history, dating back to June, 1911... (p.1)

This presentation will describe Cornell University Library efforts to provide an "afterlife" to The Cornell Veterinarian by leveraging a number of disparate initiatives and metadata sources. While attempting to build article level linking to full-text in HathiTrust (functionality currently unavailable), limitations in the metadata captured during the scanning process were uncovered. The speaker will delineate these metadata findings and provide strategies (some scalable, others highly labor intensive) for gathering the necessary metadata for creating direct links to articles found in HathiTrust.
