Exhibit design and layout:
|Each of the archives'
online exhibits has been created from a selection of original documents
in our collections. In general, many more documents relating to a particular
topic can be found in the archives, and viewers are welcome to visit the
department to use these materials. Anyone interested in pursuing archival
research at Rensselaer, should consult additional online information about
the department and its holdings.
People occasionally wonder why we don't scan ALL of our holdings for easy access via the Web. The answer is simple: with Rensselaer's 175 year history, it would take a long time (and considerable resources) to convert the millions of photographs, letters, diaries, minutes, reports, and other items that make up the Institute's documentary past. We will continue to add to our online collections, so visit us often to see what's new in the online gallery.
