The library has been digitizing its collections since 1998, and its growing digital library now includes collections of photographs of New York City, manuscripts, maps, and broadsides from the Revolutionary War era, manuscripts relating to slavery and African American history, Civil War materials, and other historical resources. Some of the collections were digitized in partnership with other institutions such as the Library of Congress and New York University, while others are part of our ongoing program to provide remote electronic access to our collections.

The digital collections listed here are freely available over the internet. Additional online resources, only available in the library’s reading room, are listed here
