Digitization: War of 1812 Artifacts Can Now be Viewed Online, Academic Library Spearheads Project

From the Article:

A new website (www.1812history.com) launched Thursday will give visitors one-stop access to a growing collection of digitized material from several Niagara museums that would typically not be put on public display.

"What you see on display at most museums is probably five to 10% of what they've got," said David Sharron, head of special collections and archives for the James A. Gibson Library at Brock University, which spearheaded the project.

"This is an opportunity to get those things in storage on display while protecting their physical integrity at the same time."

More than 700 items from area museums have been captured in more than 22,000 digital images so far and posted to the website for history buffs, researchers, students and anyone else to explore.
