Digital Collections

The Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections actively collects digital materials in all subject areas. These range from text and image files to video, audio, databases, email, and web sites.

Prominent among the Division's growing digital collections is the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art, a collection of digital and interactive art with a concentration on 21st century developments in cinema, video, installation, photography, and sound.

The Division is also working to digitize its physical collections. A broad selection of material can be found in the collection Images from Cornell's Rare Book and Manuscript Collections, and several highlights of our subject-specific collections are shown below.
