Digital Representations Available
Digital representations of all original pictorial materials are available as a part of the Container list of the finding aid.
Digital image files were captured from originals by the Library Photographic Service. Most Library originals were captured
directly using a Phase One Powerphase digital camera back and a Hasselblad camera. Lower-resolution viewing files were prepared
from the high-resolution master TIFF files: the master files were downsampled, sharpened, color-corrected, adjusted for a
gamma 2.2 viewing environment, and saved in JFIF (JPEG) format before being placed on the server.
Items from various sources, including gifts to the library and library purchases.
