    Great Neck Library is the custodian of the microfilm reels of the Nassau Alphabetical of New York City Telephone Directories (Nassau County) collection, dating from January 1913 through December 1974. Recently digitally reformatted, these directories will soon be available online through the Great Neck Public Library Website and New York Heritage. The Directories are a resource like no other, giving a snapshot of who lived where and confirming residency at any specific time.

    Christy Orquera, Local History Librarian at Great Neck Public Library, will walk us through the information found in the directory and offer real world examples of research questions posed by insurance agents, realtors, previous homeowners, genealogists and biographers, from across the country.

    This project was funded by an RDBD Grant through the Long Island Library Resources Council.

    Learn how archivists in the field use the equipment at hand to scan items like atlas plates and photographs that are oversized, curling or fragile. This is a practical guide to creating a good working environment suitable for digitizing on a budget. Using the latest presentation technology, this next Digitization Series program will be hosted at the LILRC Scan Center.
