This new site from the New York Public Library shows exceptional potential. Currently, over a dozen collections from past NYPL exhibitions and related projects are available. Highlights include: digital images and text of African Americans in the 19th Century; the Schomburg Center Video Oral History Gallery: selected QuickTime clips from the Louis Armstrong Jazz Oral History Project; and Moving Uptown: Nineteenth-century Views of Manhattan. Other selections include Tobacco Culture in 17th- and 18th-century Europe, a stereoscopic views collection, and an exhibit on the Romanovs and their books. The collections are mostly image-based, and the list of future offerings promises exhibits of equal breadth and quality. Additional resources include archival finding aids for three performing arts collections.
