Pan-American Exposition Scrapbooks The digitization of the 24 volumes was made possible through the Regional Bibliographic Data Bases and Interlibrary Resources Sharing Program of New York State (NYS). This grant from NYS provides monies each year to fund projects that will benefit the region’s libraries.
Community History Projects - The B&ECPL has been building a “Digitized Commons” for Community History Projects through collaborative relationships with community partners. This website features the Hispanic Heritage History Project, a unique project being conducted by the Hispanic Heritage Council of WNY, Inc. to collect materials such as oral history interviews and historical photographs from community members relating to local Hispanic heritage. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (LG-07-12-0551-12).
