Photographic Treasure Trove
- The NY Public Library is putting on-line today (3/4/05) "hundreds of thousands of its images...allowing free personal downloads of materials including maps, Civil War photos, and illuminated medieval manuscripts."
"The NYPL Digital Gallery will have 275,000 images available beginning today, and the collection will grow to 500,000 images over the next several months, library officials announced Wednesday."
"The images 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."
