Hello all, Last week, Carnegie Hall announced the launch of its new online Digital Collections, inviting the general public to search, explore, and download more than 80,000 recently digitized historic items from its Archives. This initial preview, drawn from the Hall's legacy collections, offers a window into the history of the Hall's earliest decades, starting with its opening in 1891. Items include Carnegie Hall concert programs and flyers from 1891-1925; photographs; correspondence; newspaper clippings; autographs; booking ledgers; and a small number of promotional films with performance excerpts from the 1950s. We are excited to invite the MCN community to explore this first batch of materials.
Visit the *Carnegie Hall Digital Collections at collections.carnegiehall.org <https://collections.carnegiehall.org/> *to explore, download, or share items from the Carnegie Hall Archives. In this release, all items have been determined to either have no copyright under US laws, or no known copyright restrictions (each item is assigned a standardized rights statement from RightsStatements.org <https://rightsstatements.org/>). The public may download and use Digital Collections content for any lawful purpose, commercial or non-commercial, provided the use is not for advertising, marketing, trade or any other purposes that may implicate rights of publicity or privacy of individuals named, depicted, or otherwise identified. As part of this work, the Archives is requesting feedback about how you wish to engage with the Hall's history. Information gathered from this survey <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CarnegieHallDigitalCollectionsPreview> will assist with improving the user experience of the current site, planning for releases of new material, and building a better collections discovery layer in the future. If you check out the Digital Collections, please consider taking the brief survey linked above or towards the bottom of the collections.carnegiehall.org home page.
