1. Title:1880's Newfoundland - A Pictorial [ Full Record ]
URL:http://collections.ic.gc.ca/nfld/
Description:This album of photographs appears to be the work of Simeon H. Parsons (1844-1908), one of Newfoundland's earliest professional, self-taught and award-winning photographers. The photographs are very much in the style for which Parsons was noted and cover a wide geographic area, including the Burin Peninsula and coastal Labrador, in addition to more easily accessible areas such as St.John's and eastern Newfoundland communities. Internal evidence dates some of the images to around 1884 - 1885, and given that the recipient of the album, Joseph Laurence, died in October 1886, it would appear safe to assume that the album was compiled during those middle years of the 1880's. Some of the images may date earlier, possibly from stock photographs Parsons may have had on hand.

The album contains some rare images of St. John's streets and buildings that were later destroyed in the 1892 fire that ravaged most of the downtown of the city. It also contains images of people at work in the fishery, particularly on the coast of Labrador; various communities on the Burin Peninsula and on the east coast of Newfoundland; rural scenes, including rivers, lakes and waterfalls; icebergs; groups of people, particularly several gatherings of Methodist clergy, some of whom Laurence was probably responsible for sending to Newfoundland.

The album should prove beneficial to researchers interested in architectural and municipal development, the development of Methodism, the history of photography, the work of Simeon Parsons, and a variety of other subjects pertaining to Newfoundland in the latter half of the Nineteenth Century.

Description:The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) and the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) are among the largest and most heavily used collections in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress. The collections document achievements in architecture, engineering, and design in the United States and its territories through a comprehensive range of building types and engineering technologies including examples as diverse as windmills, one-room schoolhouses, the Golden Gate Bridge, and buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. As of March 1998, America's built environment has been recorded through surveys containing more than 363,000 measured drawings, large-format photographs, and written histories for more than 35,000 historic structures and sites dating from the seventeenth to the twentieth century. This first release adds digital images to the searchable on-line catalog records, including images of the pages of written histories for all HAER surveys and about 25% of HABS surveys, 17% of the HAER survey photographs and a small sampling of the HABS and HAER measured drawings. Additional digital images will be added monthly. As an example, the on-line catalog record for the Beebe Windmill in Suffolk County, New York, shows how the full range of documentation for a survey will be displayed once it has been digitized. -- from the Website.

19. Title:Digital Scriptorium [ Full Record ]
URL:http://sunsite.berkeley.edu/Scriptorium/
Description:The Digital Scriptorium was conceived as an image dated and datable medieval and renaissance manuscripts, intended to unite scattered resources into an international tool for teaching and scholarly research. It has evolved into a general union catalog designed for the use of paleographers, codicologists, art historians, textual scholars and other researchers. As a visual catalog, it allows scholars to verify with their own eyes cataloguing information about places and dates of origin, scripts, artistic styles, and quality. It documents visually even those manuscripts that traditionally would have been unlikely candidates for reproduction. It provides public access to fragile materials otherwise available only within libraries. Because it is web-based, it encourages interaction between the knowledge of scholars and the holdings of libraries to build an ever-enriched and corrected flow of information. Now, at the end of Phase One, the Digital Scriptorium consists of ca. 8,500 color images from the joined holdings of the Berkeley and Columbia-affiliated libraries, as well as the Union Theological Seminary (NY) and the De BellisCollection (CA). The database also includes some 1000 images of archival materials, photographed both as a teaching resource for courses in diplomatics, and in recognition of the historical linking of book and documentary hands; this category of material is also flagged in the database so that a scholar may restrict his search to it, or exclude it from a general search.
