ARTstor Repository of images that include collections from a wide variety of civilizations, time-periods, and media. The images are drawn from different sources, such as museums, archaeological teams, photo archives, slide collections, and art reference publishers.
The collections of the Prints & Photographs Division include photographs, fine and popular prints and drawings, posters, and architectural and engineering drawings. While international in scope, the collections are particularly rich in materials produced in, or documenting the history of, the United States and the lives, interests and achievements of the American people.
Of particular interest are the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) and the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) collections, which are among the largest and most heavily used in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress. These collections amount to nearly 400,000 images.
See also The Architecture, Design, and Engineering category, which covers about 40,000 drawings (described in more than 3,900 catalog records), spanning 1600 to 1989, with most dating between 1880 and 1940.
