About this collection

 

In Spring 2000, the Greater Cincinnati Library Consortium (now SWON Libraries) successfully completed a year-long pilot project, making nearly 6,000 local history images available on the World Wide Web. Seven participating libraries and museums (providing collections and local funds) and five co-sponsors (providing local funds) were involved in the development of an electronic database of local history materials, presented in Web format. Funding was also provided via a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant. Pre-1940 photos, postcards and slides relating to landmarks and events of local interest (with limited text) are now accessible for use by Greater Cincinnati Area researchers, students, and the general public. Each institution selected items representing "highlights" of its local history collection.
