Please join us for this nine-part webinar series exploring the various services the Empire State Library Network has to offer.
New York Heritage Digital Collections features curated selections of digital cultural heritage
materials from libraries, library systems, historical societies, museums, archives, and other
cultural institutions across the state of New York. More than 380 contributing organizations have contributed over 340,000 cultural objects to our platform. This service is administered by eight of the nine library councils (METRO has Digital Culture of Metropolitan NY), supporting contributors through training and other resources. This year, we will begin adding exhibits from our contributing organizations. While the process for contributing to New York Heritage varies between regions, this presentation will give an overview of the platform, the types of collections we feature, and our new exhibit platform.
