Now online: a collection of labor posters from Tamiment. The Tamiment Library Poster Collection consists of items published between 1904 and 1991, that relate to left-radicalism, progressive movements, labor unions, and counter-culture in the United States, and in over thirty other countries.

At DLTS, we are always working on making our processes more efficient. On the digitization side, much of our work requires painstaking efforts that only skilled photographers can perform. Some of it, however, is tedious and repetitive, and a great candidate for automation.
A long time ago, DLTS digitized a book for Fales Library as part of an exhibition they were working on. The book was Soni͡a v tsarstvi͡e diva, the first edition of Alice in Wonderland in Russian. We recently re-shot the book to make the page images clearer. Soon, people will be able to search Bobcat and discover this lovely book.
We’ve acquired a number of new databases and indexes, including:
NYU’s Division of Libraries publishes Progressions twice a year in the fall and spring, with news and updates on acquisitions, services, staff, events, renovation, and other library developments.
