The Library of Congress is an incredible, and at times, forgotten resource. With more than 15 million images available for research – from Dorthea Lang’s Migrant Mother, to the very first photo portrait ever taken in America – this valuable online collection is growing, becoming more easily accessible with over 50,000 newly digitized images every year.
Helena Zinkham, the Chief of Prints and Photographs, will join us and ASPP in this webinar to discuss exactly what’s in the collection for photo researchers to use, how to efficiently find the images you need, and the easiest way to get your hands on fresh, undigitized images. Photo researchers and editors, join us on Tuesday, April 8th, 4pm ET and see what’s beneath the surface of this amazing visual resource.

- Great techniques for searching and finding the right image
- How to get rights-free pictures at the Library of Congress – download and go!
- Digging deeper into the rich world of undigitized images
- Resourcing imagery to enhance your multimedia channels
