Loan items for the Digital Images Archive

Recognizing the need to preserve Bristol’s visual history, the Preservation and Access Committee is excited to announce the launch of a new initiative to create a Digital Images Archive. The committee, led in the project by professional archivist and board member Chuck Rand, will be soliciting community members for permission to scan photographs from their personal collections. Each digital image will carry with it the name of the contributor. The result of this collective effort, if participation is high, will be an amazing collection of old Bristol images organized on a searchable database. The committee plans to make this archive available through the Bristol Area Library and eventually hopes to provide online access. If you have any photos that you would like to have scanned and added to the archive, please contact Chuck at 207-553-0034.
