a web-based collection of approximately 1,800 books and
pamphlets, 6,000 photographs, 200 maps, and 13,000
pages from manuscript and archival collections selected
from Harvard's library, archives and museums...[b]y
incorporating diaries, biographies and other writings
capturing diverse experiences, the collected material
provides a window into the lives of ordinary immigrants.
In addition to thousands of items now accessible, the
collection includes contextual information on
