The Library of Virginia (last discussed in the November 20, 1998 Scout Report
) has added to their digital collections materials of interest to a variety of researchers in American or Virginia history. Now available are 3100 photos from hundreds of elementary and secondary school buildings across Virginia, taken between 1920 and 1970. This recent addition consists of digitized documents placed in a database that is searchable by three options: word or phrase, combination, and expert/boolean. Search returns offer basic information on each record, and users must follow the link at the bottom of the page to download the digitized images (in .tif format) of the record. A generic TIFF viewer for Windows 3.11/95 may be downloaded for free at the site.
