NYPL Digital Gallery

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Launched today, this service from the New York Public Library puts online more than 250,000 historical images, all of which are available for free to view, download and print (but not public comercially). No doubt the server is being overwhelmed; it was frequently unavailable during the day today. Opening day jitters. Also worth noting is the repository system used to store the images and the XML used to managed them. The service will eventually display around 500,000 images - and more to the point, sets a great example of what our own National Library and similar services should be doing. More. Via Zeldman.
