Le problème central ce n'est pas la durée de mise en ligne des pages scannées.
C’est surtout le repérage de qq pépites (scolaires) parmi ... des dizaines de milliers d’objets

(cf. en photo :si le New Deal retrouvait sa place dans un programme d'histoire,
Migrant Mother, la très célèbre photo de Dorothea Lange serait inévitable.
Mais la base Photogrammar comporte 170 000 photos

 Women in Cartography :
Celebrating 400 Years of Unsung Contributions to the Mapping World
Osher Maps Library, South Maine

March 26, 2015 to October 22, 2015
http://www.oshermaps.org/exhibitions/women-in-cartography



« This exhibition recognizes and celebrates the long overlooked role of women in the world of mapping; bringing their stories, accomplishments, and most importantly their maps to light. Curated by Alice Hudson, former Chief of the Map Division at the New York Public Library, Women in Cartography showcases the works of better-known women cartographers such as Marie Tharp, who, in partnership with Bruce Heezen, created the first scientific map of the entire ocean floor, and, Agnes Sinclair Holbrook who created the Hull-House maps, statistical cartographic presentations of social data from the immigrant rich Near West Side neighborhoods of Chicago ».
