New York Public Library Digital Gallery Now Online

The New York Public Library has announced a new digital library now available to the public. Here are a few of the galleries that caught my eye in the Printing and Graphics category. Unfortunately, the image-viewing function seems exceedingly buggy, even after installing LizardTech's Express View 3.4.2 under IE. Firefox seems even less well-supported.

Charting North America: Maps from the Leonard Slaughter Collection and Others

The Floating World: Japanese Color Woodcuts by Kitagawa Utamaro

Dust Jackets from American and European Books, 1926-1947

Posters of the Russian Civil War, 1918-1922

World War I Photograph Albums and Postcards

UPDATE: Apparently the server couldn't handle the enthusiastic level of response. The "bugginess" was nothing more than server constipation.
