The New York Public Library, Research Libraries
As libraries and cultural institutions consolidate and continue to increase their digital activities and build new digital collections, the issues of scale and sustainability come to the fore. The “Image Gate” Project at the New York Public Library provides an excellent test bed for evaluating and shaping collection development and public service policy in the near future. This session will provide a brief overview of the project to date and will present the thinking that provides the background for the public interface.
