This appeared in my email the day before Thanksgiving. Even though you may be on holiday, I want you to see this when you return! This Dec. 4 webinar panel includes Henry Raine, from the New-York Historical Society, and two people from Backstage Library Works. Register is open for this webinar, which will run from 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET.
The photographic collection documenting 50 years of subway
construction in New York City is a trove of 20th century visual history.
As one of the most frequently requested collections at the New-York
Historical Society Museum and Library, these photos were a prime
candidate for digitization and metadata enhancement.
Backstage Library Works presents:
Digitization of the New-York Historical Society
Subway Construction Photograph Collection
In this webinar, Henry Raine from the New-York Historical Society joins
Annemarie Hartzell and Casey Cheney from Backstage to walk you through
the collaborative process of creating digital images and adding geodata
to facilitate improved search and access within the collection.
