A generous five-year grant from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation is enabling the Palmer School of Library and Information Science at Long Island University to digitize local history materials in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. The $1.5 million grant provides fellowships for master’s and doctoral students to assist with the project.
We are pleased to provide public access to materials we have digitized to date:
- 43 historical organizations
- 60,000 images
- 3,700 gigabytes of data
We will continue to add new historical materials, highlight particular collections, and enhance the search functionality of the site. Please visit often to explore primary sources documenting the people of Long Island!
