Museum and Library Collaboration

Matthew Martin, Wayne State University, USA

The collections focus on Detroit, its culture, history, and leading citizens. The emphasis is primarily on image collections including 35mm slides, negatives (including glass plate, channel acetate, nitrates), and new digital photography. One collection of Detroit/Windsor Poetry is primarily text. Other formats will be added later. Most collections can be searched individually or in combination.

These initiatives are funded in large part through grants from Sun Microsystems and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
