Open Parks Network

Screenshot
We featured this new initiative from the National Parks Service, Clemson University, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services in September 2017. Today, this exciting collection features over 240,000 items.

From the National Park Service, Clemson University, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services comes the Open Parks Network - an extensive digital repository of images related to the U.S. national parks of past and present. This impressive collection, which includes over 200,000 images, can be explored by park and by collection. As of this write-up, the Open Parks Network features 19 national parks. Each of these parks contains multiple specific collections, ranging from Civil War Newspaper Illustrations (part of the Fort Sumter National Monument); Jimmy Carter Memorabilia (from the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site) and items from the National Prisoner of War Museum (from the Andersonville National Historic Site). Of course, this collection also includes a number of striking images taken of the parks themselves throughout history, revealing how the national parks have changed over time.
