CONTENTdm Featured Collections: June 2017

Organizations worldwide are using CONTENTdm to create thousands of outstanding digital collections and to provide easy access to their unique holdings.

This month, three collections are featured on the OCLC website. The featured collections for June are the Ohio Transportation Collection, the Strobridge Lithographing Company Circus & Theater Posters collection and the St. John Photograph Collection.

Ohio Transportation Collection

Columbus Metropolitan Library

The Ohio Transportation Collection is a collection with hundreds of images of Ohio streetcars, interurban railcars, trains and canal boats. This is an invaluable source of information for understanding the growth of Ohio, and understanding the vast network of transportation that formerly served the state.

Strobridge Lithographing Company Circus & Theater Posters

The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County

This collection features circus and theater posters created by Cincinnati’s Strobridge Lithographing Company, and printed in the 1890s through the mid-1920s.

St. John Photograph Collection

Missouri State University

This collection contains images likely created by Mary (Garrison) St. John, a photographer from Ozark, Missouri, in the first decade of the 20th century. In 1909, she married James D. St. John and moved with him to Corvallis, Montana, where she died in 1963. Most of the images have relatively little accompanying information. If you can identify anything about these images, please contact the MSU Archives. The original collection of glass plate negatives, owned by the Christian County Historical Society, was digitized by Missouri State University.
