Digital Culture of Metropolitan New York (DCMNY) provides online access to digital collections that document the history of the metropolitan New York region.
METRO is very fortunate to work with a variety of wonderful member institutions to provide digital space for valuable collections online in the Digital Culture of Metropolitan New York (DCMNY) shared repository space.
Our Digitization Grant Program helps our member libraries build and maintain digital collections.
We launched our Digitization Grant Program in January 2005 to support projects involving significant collections held by METRO member libraries in New York City and Westchester County. Since that time, we’ve awarded over $900,000 in grants to support 92 digital projects. Our grant program is supported in part by funds from the New York State Regional Bibliographic Databases Program.
We all have a lot to learn from each other. METRO connects people who are doing similar work at different institutions.
Our Interest Groups are convened by leaders in our field around a topic of interest to our community.
