American Geographical Society Digital Photo Archive

American Geographical Society Digital Photo Archive [http://www.uwm.edu/Libraries/digilib/agsphoto/index.html] - The University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee has rolled out a number of fine digital collections over the past few years that have covered everything from Golda Meir to the Milwaukee Repertory Theater. This latest addition provides access to over 2000 photographs from the American Geographical Society Library (AGSL). The current collection is primarily focused on countries in Asia and the Middle East, and they hope to expand their collection in the near future to include additional regions of the world. Visitors to the site can search the collection by country, city, or search term of their choice. Highlights of the archive include some remarkable photographs of the waterfront in Alexandria, the markets of Bangkok, and photographs of the city of Kathmandu. >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2008. http://scout.wisc.edu/
