Digital Asset Management Links — January 8, 2016
Big news in digital archives! The New York Public Library has opened their digital collection to the public. As of today there are 672,153 items available to view, and new items are being added daily. This is an exciting addition to the online library world and good news for learners everywhere. Until now, the archives were only available by request and/or a fee. This “attempt to democratize its assets for all who want to learn.” Always a pleasure to see a new digital archive open up, especially one of this size and status. – Tech Times
