Even if you cannot get to the 3rd floor of the Mid-Manhattan branch of the New York Public Library, you can still browse the library’s inspiring image holdings.
Click here for the gateway to the NYPL’s Art and Picture Collections. Once you’re there, you can access fabulous image collections like the vintage holiday card collection and the Wonders of the Ancient World Collection. The NYPL has also included a really useful guide to subject headings, or tags, for items that are contained in these image collections.
Have you used images from the NYPL holdings for a creative project? Do you have a favorite item or collection from the NYPL digital galleries that you would like to share? Do you have questions about the best ways to search or use these collections? Let us know: post your comments here, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
