actual images on NYPL site

Recommended Posts

i believe someone somewhere sometime on this site noted that the newyork public library catalogue had actual images - select prints and/or photos - up on catnyp. does this ring a bell with anyone? can anyone tell me how to access these digitalized images from the site itself? is there a special designation in the listing that indicates a pic. that can be called up?

or do i hallucinate?

A collection called "Performing Arts in America, 1875-1923" is available at http://dlc.nypl.org/lpa/nypl/home.html

If that doesn't work, go to www.nypl.org and follow the links to "Digital Library Collections."

Use the "Search" utility to search for the names that interest you. Clicking on a small "thumbnail" picture will enlarge it to fill your screen. The images are clear and fascinating, covering many styles of theatre and dance. You can set aside favorite images in a personal gallery. Note the dates, however; pictures less than 80 years old are not presently available on line.

much obliged.

"Restraint"? I never knew that word existed on the Internet! ;) Surely the whole object is to find the most rewarding ways to waste time. Enjoy!
