The Lucy Scribner Library’s Digital Collections, a series of projects that began at Skidmore College in September 2012, have grown dramatically over the past year and a half. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Scribner Library’s Archives and Special Collections, Visual Resources, Bibliographic Services and Systems departments, they have made six distinct digital collections available. The collections began with a selection of stunning photographs of over one hundred works from the Library’s Artists’ Books collection. Most recently, they have digitized an illuminated Book of Hours from the 15th century. The Library also has an ongoing project, Saratoga Maps, to digitize a collection of maps of the city of Saratoga Springs and surrounding area.
