NYPL Digital Gallery

Several blogs and media sources have heralded the arrival of the NYPL's new online gallery of images. The site says:
NYPL Digital Gallery provides access to over 275,000 images digitized from primary sources and printed rarities in the collections of The New York Public Library, including illuminated manuscripts, historical maps, vintage posters, rare prints and photographs, illustrated books, printed ephemera, and more.

The About NYPL Digital Gallery page contains information on how the images were selected, organized and delivered. Good information that other projects may find useful.
