Digital Collections Inventory Report
Preliminary ResultsBy Patricia A. McClung
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Photographic Database
The Pittsburgh Public Schools, the University of Pittsburgh, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center formed a consortium (supported by approximately $500,000 from the Dept. of Commerce NTIA) to establish electronic links among three Pittsburgh schools, the Hill House, and the Carnegie Libraries of Pittsburgh via the Internet. An extensive collection of materials on the history of Pennsylvania will be converted, including portions of the Pittsburgh Photographic Library with a collection of over 57,000 prints and negatives offering a visual history of the city. A portion of the images will be made available on the Internet sometime in 1995.
