Collection Overview

Citing Resources - Copyright Information

Scope: Like books and magazines in the Library's general collections, this set of Web sites complements the original and historical visual material held in the Prints & Photographs Division. Included are sites for photographers and cartoonists represented in P&P (e.g., Kuper, Prokudin-Gorskii, Rogovin, and Telnaes). Also, Web sites for new digital image formats (e.g., Wrist photography, Reicholdarts cell phone photos, and Micah Wright remix posters). Other sites document new ways of displaying the visual arts through virtual galleries (e.g., Alternative Museum) and new ways of respresenting architectural work and the built environment (e.g., McKissock, Pritzker Prize, Vergara's Invincible Cities, and Vignoly). Major current event themes include views of Kurdistan and the Iraq War.

This collection is part of a continuing effort by the Library of Congress to evaluate, select, collect, catalog, provide access to, and preserve digital materials for future generations of researchers.

Collection Period: March 30, 2006 - November 29, 2006

Number of Sites: 17
