This site presents selections from the New-York Historical Society Museum and Library’s holdings, featuring highlights from the collections of paintings, drawings, photographs, manuscripts, broadsides, maps, and other materials that reveal the depth and breadth of over two centuries of collecting. The N-YHS Digital Collections site is expanding as the library and museum continue to digitize their primary source materials relating to the history of New York and the United States. We encourage users to explore the site to conduct research within the growing number of collections that are available through this portal. We also encourage researchers to visit the library to use our rich collections of materials that have not yet been digitized and to visit the museum to view many objects in the permanent galleries or in temporary exhibitions. You can find out more about the library's holdings through its online catalog and finding aids for manuscript and visual collections, and you can learn about the museum's holdings through eMuseum, its online museum catalog. The N-YHS Digital Collections are presented on this site through an open-source software platform, Islandora.
