Death of a Library
The Donnell Library in NYC was an excellent resource, including a vast video and film library. The real estate gods of Manhattan know no mercy, so it's been closed and will reopen as a luxury hotel, because we all know that there aren't enough places to stay for $1000 a night in New York City. Here's a great blog posting by Igor, who works for Archive.org. They were in there digitizing a bunch of the library's collection. Very sad, but the pictures are captivating.
