• Allegheny County Law Library

    Allegheny County Law Library logo

    In 1867, Act No. 1211 provided for the purchase and support of a county law library, to be kept in, or near, the courthouse for the use of area citizens. Thus, the Allegheny County Law Library is the first county law library and has been serving the community for 150 years. Percy Digby was the first library director, serving from 1885 to 1907. Today, the Allegheny County Law Library is managed by the Duquesne University Center for Legal Information through a unique joint-library partnership. Based on an agreement between Duquesne University and Allegheny County, the two libraries offer legal research collections and services that meet the needs of the legal community as well as the public of Allegheny County and western Pennsylvania. The library’s collection consists of more than 150,000 volumes dating from 1488 to the present.

    Since first opening our doors in 1873, we've served all Chicagoans with free and open places to gather, learn, connect, read and be transformed. Although Chicago Public Library has changed dramatically since our beginnings in an abandoned water tower after the Great Chicago Fire, our mission has remained constant: We welcome and support all people in their enjoyment of reading and pursuit of lifelong learning. Working together, we strive to provide equal access to information, ideas and knowledge through books, programs and other resources. We believe in the freedom to read, to learn, to discover.

  • Franklin Institute Library

    Franklin Institute Library logo

    As the most visited museum in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and a top-five tourist destination in the City of Philadelphia, The Franklin Institute is one of the leading science centers in the country, and serves as both a prominent educational and cultural resource, and as an anchor of the local economy. Science and technology have the potential to solve some of the most critical issues of our time, to improve our lives, and to inspire our curiosity about the world around us. Every day The Franklin Institute provides resources that help people to connect with science and technology in creative ways that resonate with learners of all ages and backgrounds. The Institute directly reaches more than 1 million people each year with informal learning experiences that engage students, adults, and families. Though its historic museum is a central learning space, the Institute has evolved to provide people with educational resources in their own neighborhoods through hands-on activities in classrooms, workshops in libraries, community centers, and other settings, and through ways to interact online. Since 1824, The Franklin Institute has pursued its commitment to making these resources available to as many people as possible throughout the mid-Atlantic region.

    The Science and Industry Museum is devoted to inspiring our visitors through ideas that change the world, from the Industrial Revolution to today and beyond. We care for a globally important heritage site comprising five listed buildings, two of them listed Grade 1. This site was the original terminus of the world’s first inter-city railway and our characteristic 1830 Warehouse epitomises Manchester’s 19th-century reputation as the "warehouse of the western world".

    Between 2003 and 2006, four government bodies – each specialising in particular aspects of managing information – joined together to form a single organisation in The National Archives. We bring together the skills and specialisms needed in today’s digital world for managing and preserving government information, building on over 170 years of pioneering work in managing official public records. Our expertise in effective records and information management, and use and re-use of information makes us a valuable resource for over 200 government and public sector bodies; and many other organisations. Since 2011, we have a leadership role for archives across England that were transferred from the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council.

    The National Archives was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt, but its major holdings date back to 1775. They capture the sweep of the past: slave ship manifests and the Emancipation Proclamation; captured German records and the Japanese surrender documents from World War II; journals of polar expeditions and photographs of Dust Bowl farmers; Indian treaties making transitory promises; and a richly bound document bearing the bold signature "Bonaparte"—the Louisiana Purchase Treaty that doubled the territory of the young republic.

    NARA keeps only those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. By now, they add up to a formidable number, diverse in form as well as in content. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.

    The NDL has two origins: one is the libraries of the House of Peers and the House of Representatives in the former Imperial Diet established in 1890; and the other is the Imperial Library established in 1872 under the Ministry of Education. Most of these collections were transferred to the present NDL.

     

    In June 1948, the NDL was opened to the public using the Akasaka Detached Palace (now the State Guest House). In August 1961, upon completion of Phase 1 of the library construction at the current Nagata-cho site, the NDL started its full service as Japan's foremost library with a stock of some two million books including collections transferred from the former Ueno Library, Branch of the NDL (former Imperial Library), and others.

  • National Museum of American History Archives Center

    The Archives Center was created in the early 1980s to serve as a repository for archival collections from throughout the National Museum of American History and to acquire additional collections in support of the museum's research, exhibition, and collecting programs. The Archives Center currently has more than 1,400 collections stored in the American History building and at off-site storage locations. In addition to paper-based textual records, many of the collections contain photographs, motion picture films, videotapes, and sound recordings. Increasingly, the collections include born digital documents in a wide variety of formats.

    With few exceptions, Archives Center collections are acquired by donation, often in conjunction with the acquisition of related artifacts and in collaboration with the Museum's curatorial staff.  Documentation projects -- including oral and video histories -- actively create new research collections.  The Museum's ability to acquire and care for artifacts and archival materials in all physical formats and to generate contemporary documentation gives it a unique capacity to record the complexity and richness of the American experience.

    People’s History Museum is the national museum of democracy, telling the story of its development in Britain: past, present, and future. We will make sure people care about the world they live in, get involved in their communities, engage with the democratic process and use their right to vote.  We will provide information, inspiration and ideas for people who ask: Why should I get involved? Why should I care? Why should I vote? Who are we?  We are a museum of ideas – ideas that are powerful, radical, innovative and world-changing – ideas that unite and bring people together – today’s ideas worth fighting for, as well as yesterday’s.  Walking through the museum brings you face to face with these world-changing ideas – election by ballot, votes for women, workers rights to fair pay, equality for all regardless of gender, race, sexuality, age or disability – and many more.  We are the only place where these ideas are brought to life through our collections, exhibitions and programmes.  Every object in our collection has played its part in the fight for democracy and equality. Each placard, banner, badge and poster has been held by different hands fighting for different causes – but all working together to make a difference.  We share inspiring stories that need to be told – of the people who fought for ideas – people who dared to be different and who made a change. We are keeping the people’s history alive and will continue to do so. Find out more: https://phm.org.uk/phm-story/
