Digital Library Technology Services (DLTS) recently augmented an online collection of documents related to the Sylvester Manor in Long Island, the home of the original European settlers on Shelter Island in eastern Long Island, built in 1652. Parts of the collection have been digitized and made available before. Now, with a grant from the Gardiner Foundation, NYU Libraries was able to digitize much of the remaining items, and DLTS has preserved these digital versions and provided access online through a finding aid.
The collection, part of the Fales Library and Special Collections, contains documents dating from its mid-17th century European settlement to the late-20th century.
