Online Resource: Digital Hagley

The Hagley Digital Archives site contains an enormous amount of curated material on a wide variety of topics. From the American Brewer trade journal, to "History of Kevlar" oral history interviews, to "Photographs and ephemera on the history of fatty materials," to Lukens Steel Company photographs, to U.S. Chamber of Commerce videos, holdings spread across the field of business history and encompass all media types. In many cases, not all of the materials in a collection have been digitized, but the user is provided with links to descriptions of the full collection, and, if one exists. to a finding aid. Within finding aids, digitized materials are linked back to the Digital Archives.
    In addition to the materials organized at Hagley Digital Archives, the Library has developed many focused web exhibits based on its holdings; a list can be found here.
