Digital Image Collections Guide Updated - 12/5/2013
*********************************The Digital Images Collections Guide has continued going strong after 2 years! Thank you for the support.
After two years, the Guide was in need of some TLC, so I have recently concluded a reconciliation project of the resources cited to insure that these websites are still live, that they navigate to the appropriate specific pages, and that these resources are indeed (generally speaking) digital image collections.To that end, I removed the relative few websites that have gone dark (good-night NBII LIFE), updated the links on a ton of collections that moved to new URL's, and removed a handful that I believe to be unrelated. I also did my best to maintain the few collections that have been added by community members over the past two years. Please update your LibGuides to reflect these changes (See attached Excel spreadsheet for specific update details).
Finally, I have not had an opportunity to seek out new exemplar digital image collections that may have come online recently. Please feel free to add any quality digital image collections to this guide, so that we can share with your colleagues. If by (entirely possible) chance I missed a resource that is no longer live or not linked to the correct image webpage, please feel free to let me know. (note to vendors: while I greatly appreciate your valuable contributions, to best maintain the unique subject facets of this guide, please limit your product addition to one or two core discipline areas).Best,

American Craft Council (ACC) Library Digital CollectionsThe ACC Library Digital Collections is an open-access online compendium containing thousands of unique images, documents and media detailing the history of contemporary craft in America. Included in the collections are ACC newsletters and photographs that provide firsthand documentation on major national craft exhibitions and conferences, as well as objects made by some of the 20th century’s leading craft artists. Full-text issues of the first twenty-five years of Craft Horizons, the preeminent mid-century journal on craft, can also be freely accessed through the database.

Alaska's Digital Archives (http://vilda.alaska.edu) - Alaska’s Digital Archives purpose is to provide a single easy to use location for institutions across this state to share their historical resources. Our goal is to support the instructional and research needs of Alaskans and others interested in Alaska history and culture.
This archive contains video, audio and documents in addition to photographs.
You might also be interested in some of the sites that come from GODORT's State Agency Databases Historical Media page at http://wikis.ala.org/godort/index.php/Historical_Media_Databases.
Thanks for the compliment and suggestion. Now that we are roughly a year and a half publish in this resource, I think this ALA Connect page is meeting our needs as a long term home (witness over 10600 views and multiple references on Libguide pages). I have since also added a more comprehensive video and audio guide as well so it keeps these resources together. That said, there is always need for greater awareness, so it would be great to have these guides added to bibliography publications, such as that of Charles Bailey.
Scott, this is looking terrific. I'm looking forward to when you're able to find a permanent home; I'm thinking something like Charles Bailey's bibliographies (example: http://digital-scholarship.org/dcpb/dcpb.htm).
