From their site: On January 6, 2016, The New York Public Library enhanced access to all public domain items in Digital Collections so that everyone has the freedom to enjoy and reuse these materials in almost limitless ways.
The tagline should actually say 670K+ and not 67K+. If someone at PH could swap that out, I would be grateful.
OMG this is incredible!
@jacqvon Agreed. This is awesome!
What are the grander implications of this?
I am always blown away by the handwriting (as seen in the screenshot as well) and makes me wonder if we have regressed significantly in this art of writing using our actual hands (and not some app which does it for us) now that we are so dependent on keyboards and auto-corrects-tech. Great to see these collections available online. Product idea - Crowd sourcing to uncover neat stuff from within this collection.
Oh and you can order prints from there, neat!
This just made my day!
