Cross Collection Discovery (CCD) provides a way to search across Yale's collections of art, natural history, books, and maps, as well as photos, audio, and video documenting people, places, and events that form part of Yale's institutional identity and contribution to scholarship. The content searchable in CCD will grow as additional University departments make use of the service to share Yale's collections with the Yale community and the world.

The Building Technology Heritage Archive was created by the Association for Preservation Technology International to provide our members and the general public with access to period documents on building construction. Trade catalogs are important primary source materials for anyone interested in documenting the construction materials and processes of older buildings. These materials only exist in a few collections. APT has taken the initiative to locate collections and develop cooperative agreements with collection owners to digitize and share these materials through the Building Technology Heritage Library.

Prelinger Archives was founded in 1983 by Rick Prelinger in New York City. Over the next twenty years, it grew into a collection of over 60,000 "ephemeral" (advertising, educational, industrial, and amateur) films. In 2002, the film collection was acquired by the Library of Congress, Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division. Prelinger Archives remains in existence, holding approximately 4,000 titles on videotape and a smaller collection of film materials acquired subsequent to the Library of Congress transaction. Getty Images represents the collection for stock footage sale, and over 2,000 key titles (soon to be 2,500) are available here. As a whole, the collection currently contains over 10% of the total production of ephemeral films between 1927 and 1987, and it may be the most complete and varied collection in existence of films from these poorly preserved genres.

Accidental Mysteries is a website started by John and Teenuh which features their collection of vernacular photography.

Approximately 10 million images are available, and because most of the photos were never published, the collection contains many “never before seen” pictures. Users can search by keyword, browse by decade, or explore featured events, people, or places. Names of photographers and the dates that photos were taken are identified. With images ranging from 1750 to the 2000s, the site will be popular with users wanting images with historical context.
