Connecticut History Online

The Connecticut Historical Society, Mystic Seaport, and the Thomas
J. Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut have
combined efforts to create this site, the first step in the
creation of a major online archive of Connecticut historical
images, due to be completed in the summer of 2001. At present, the
pilot site offers over 1,200 images, searchable by keyword,
advanced search, or by collection. Visitors can also search within
five categories (Diversity, Lifestyle, Environment, Livelihood, and
Infrastructure) and browse the entire collection by subject, title,
or creator. Search returns include a photo title, date, and a small
image (annoyingly not a thumbnail). Users must call up the full
record and select the view image link to display the images
(available in one size only). The site is worth a visit for anyone
interested in Connecticut history or digital image archives.
