Rochester Library has new Digital Collections website.

The Monroe County Library System is a leading digital content producer.

A description in part from their new website is as follows:

Digital Collections consist of photographs, books, manuscripts, maps, directories, postcards, and other items that have been digitized for easy access and for the preservation of original print material held within selected local collections in Monroe County.

The thousands of items found here represent the rich history of the Rochester region. They are of interest to anyone researching local history and genealogy. Digitizing materials allows researchers to have access to items that are rare and fragile. Also, collections throughout the county can now be searched at one online location, thanks to the cooperation of many partner institutions.
