      > NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Public Library is putting
      > hundreds of thousands of its images online, allowing free
      > personal downloads of material including maps, Civil War
      > photos and illuminated medieval manuscripts. The NYPL Digital
      > Gallery will have 275,000 images available beginning
      > Thursday, and the collection will grow to 500,000 images over
      > the next several months, library officials announced
      > Wednesday. Many of the images are unique to the library,
      > library President Paul LeClerc said. The images should get
      > wide use, whether by ``a historian studying the Revolutionary
      > War, a scenic designer researching old New York neighborhoods
      > or a fashion designer looking for inspiration in vintage
      > clothing,'' said David Ferriero, the library's Andrew W.
      > Mellon director and chief executive of the research
      > libraries. The materials can be downloaded free for personal
      > use. Use of the images for publication or in film, television
      > or the Internet can be arranged through the library's
      > Permissions Department.
