One of the more interesting digital collections of images I’ve seen online is the New York Public Library collection of images. The site is fairly new, so it looks modern and crisp in it’s design. One of the features on the front page is the recently digitized section. It is really cool to see what comes up as newly digitized. Not only do they have images from New York City in there, they also have old drawings, gay and lesbian historical images, theatrical photography, poster collections, and book art and illustrations, just to name a few.
Some of the content requires a membership, but a good majority of the content included on the site is free to view and to download. I would have used this site to download some of the images, but the Library of Congress website had more of what I needed to accomplish my brochure project.
