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, 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 narks. Each of these parks contain 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.
