Print and Photographs Online Catalog Updated

For months the curators and technologists at the Library of Congress have been working together on a spectacular (and welcome) revamp of the Prints and Photographs Online Catalog. The online collection can now be found at the easy-to-remember address of www.loc.gov/pictures/ — with many images available for downloading.

Some of the new features include creative new ways to browse their 1.25 million online prints and photos, such as grids that give a quick overview of dozens of images at once and even a slideshow format that lets you toggle bibliographic information on and off.

The interface is reminiscent of other existing sites that offer powerful ways to search for and display images, such as the ever-popular Flickr.  In celebration of this new milestone, the LOC has posted a new set of highlight images from the Library called “Meet More Treasures.”  They consider it a thank you to all of those who have found value and pleasure in the Library’s priceless collections of more than 14 million pictures (both online and in their physical collections). I for one am grateful since I’ve found value (in the form of income) and pleasure from this site. Many of you have as well

  • I chuckled when I found that the image on my desktop wallpaper is an LOC Treasure.

    Tony, I interrupt this regularly scheduled blog post to tell you what a bad job you have been doing.

    I am doing some stuff with my two adult children, internet -wise, and I remembered references to your Step-by-Step program last year. I thought it might be worth checking out. Tony, I had to dig through a 100 emails from you to find a link to the sign-up page. I couldn’t believe the deal you were offereing at that time was still live, but I signed up.

    Boy…am I stupid. I have watched one webinar video, #3 of the series on free tools…Tony, my membership is paid for, for the next three months at least. The value of what you provided – free auto-responders, free shopping carts, free utilities for research, keywords, I can’t even remember everything that was there. Tony, that was just one video in one series that you have. And you call yourself a marketer? You have been hiding the value of this thing under a basket. I give you a D for marketing. If you don’t have two thousand members to your Step-by-Step program, you just fail. I’m sorry to say it.

    But I’ll tell you what. Turn this membership site into an affiliate program. Sign me up. I can’t believe the value. I can’t believe I am giving you a free plug like this but I feel like I need to let people know. If they aren’t signed up for your Step-by-Step site, or don’t sinng up soon, I hope they never find out how good it is, because their butts will be sore from kicking themselves for the time they wasted. I’m typing this standing up, as we speak right now.

    PS Tony, any of your readers can email me personally to validate this. pstevens55@gmail.com

  • When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Cheers!

    I’ll try to fix this for you.
