Digitization of Historic Newspapers

Digitizing the Still and Moving Image Collection
Over the past several years, our Library &Archives (L&A) staff and volunteers have digitized over 300,000 images and placed them on Flickr.com. We believe ours is now the largest aviation related image collection on the web, and it has become very well known among aviation enthusiasts, worldwide. Our digitized collection is so popular, according to the Flickr.com statistics page, that our images have now surpassed 300 million views. We have also digitized over to 5,000 films and placed them on YouTube.
