Small-Town America, 1850-1920

Building the Digital Collection

The New York Public Library received an award in the 1996/97 round of the Library of Congress / Ameritech National Digital Library Competition to support the digitization of this selection from the Robert N. Dennis Collection of Stereoraphic Views. As encouraged by the guidelines, the image files and several of the web pages describing the source collection and the project are mounted and maintained at the New York Public Library.

Bibliographic records in the MARC format were delivered to the Library of Congress for indexing as part of American Memory. Each record describes a group of images and includes a link to the New York Public Library's presentation of that group of images. The presentation is generated dynamically from a database at the New York Public Library.
