H.M.S. CHALLENGER REPORTS ON CD AND DVD

Last update November 22, 2006


22 November 2006

NOTICE -- New CD & DVD Collections Available.


The HMS Challenger library is available in 17 updated topical collections, available individually or as a set.

The CD  collections include the entire contents of the HMS Challenger library as currently posted (text images at 100 ppi). The DVD collections include the contents plus text images at 400 ppi and  original full-size unprocessed photographic images of (almost) all plates at 200 ppi.

Each CD and  DVD is designed to operate independently, or the contents can be combined to mirror the web site collection.

Both collections are available in standard high quality media or in special archival gold media, rated for over 100 years.

Please use this web page to order these collections.

Similar collections for the Golden Age of Geology library will be available after adding some important new material to the collection.


Please send any inquiries or special requests to 
Dr. David C. Bossard.





This catalog links to a PAYPAL shopping cart. You do not have to be a Paypal member to make a credit card purchase. 

If you do NOT wish to use PAYPAL, you may also pay with a money order payable in $US, but please notify us by email before you do.  The email address is displayed in the shopping cart.

Please do not send personal checks. Send cash in $US at your own risk (but its probably safe, at least at this end).


A shipping/handling charge of $5 is added to each order, regardless of the number of items purchased.  Our desire is to make these CDs and DVDs available worldwide,
so there is no added charge for shipment outside of the U.S. 

Items will be shipped
first-class in North America, and airmail outside of North America. Shipment will be made as soon as possible after receiving payment. If there is any delay (to make additional CDs, for example) we will notify you immediately by email.

Satisfaction is guaranteed, and we will replace defective items, or refund payment if you notify us within a reasonable time (30 days seems reasonable to us) with the reason for your dissatisfaction.

You can check your shopping cart at any time by using this link:
 



You can change quantities, delete items, and do final checkout from the Shopping Cart.

You are not committed to complete a purchase or provide any personal information until the final checkout.





The Collection of HMS Challenger reports is available  in both CD and DVD format.

The CD collections are a direct image of the website reports, and contain the text pages at 100 ppi. Many plates are at both 100 ppi and 200 ppi or higher. Maps and charts are at resolutions up to 800 ppi.

The DVD collections include the contents of the CD collections plus the text pages at 400 ppi (to use with optical character recognition software), and copies of (most) original (trimmed but otherwise unedited) figures and plates.  The original copies can be used to re-process pages (improve rendition, color, contrast, etc.)

This is a first revision of the H.M.S. Challenger collections in an electronic format, and it is expected that improvements in quality will be made over time.

COLLECTION CDs.

The CD Collections are arranged by topic. The individual reports are described in the catalog of CD singles, and in the linked index.

** ** The Collections are now available on Archival gold CDs. These CDs are rated for over a 100 year life and have special hardened coatings to resist abrasion.

COLLECTION DVDs.



The Collections are arranged by topic. All collection DVDs include the folder HMSC-INDEX, which contains both the linked index and the illustrated index. The Format of the Collection DVDs is the same as the Backup DVDs.

In principle, the Collection DVDs could be used directly from the DVD without copying the contents to a hard drive. Access may be slow, however, and the user may prefer to copy the DVD contents to a hard drive before use.


** ** The Collections are now available on Archival gold DVDs. These DVDs are rated for over a 100 year life and have special hardened coatings to resist abrasion.
