The project to digitize photographs from the General Photograph Collection was undertaken by project archivist, Nichole Shea, under the supervision of Special Collections Librarian, Kate Wells. Support to complete the digitization of the photographs has been provided by the Digital Commonwealth and is federally funded with LSTA funds through the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. Work on the Digital Commonwealth repository and website is being funded through the Boston Public Library's Library for the Commonwealth program.
