Last month, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)'s Leon Levy Digital Archive became open to the public. Thanks to a grant from the Leon Levy Foundation, over 70,000 items representing 40,000 artists are now digitally available, dating back to BAM's opening in the 1860s. Researchers can create personalized collections of digital items based on specific artists, companies, or eras. The archives contains items such a playbills, posters, audio recordings, photographs, and other ephemera.

The collection is available at levyarchive.bam.org.
