They’re beautiful! They’re eco-friendly! They’re free!
December 10, 2013—Harvard Library holiday e-cards featuring images from Harvard collections are now available on the Harvard Library portal.
This beta project incorporates six beautiful images from three Harvard Library repositories on free Harvard Library e-cards. The e-cards, which can be personalized, are available to anyone with access to the Harvard Library portal, and can be sent to any email address.
In addition to an image from a collection, each e-card includes an optional personal message, a brief description of the image, a link to the catalog entry and a link to the e-cards landing page.
If the holiday e-cards prove popular, a program of regular e-cards will be considered for other holidays, like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, etc. and, if so, crowd-source image suggestions from the Library community.
The e-cards were developed by Tom Dodson, web developer. Marilyn Dunn from Schlesinger, Rachel Howarth and Susan Pyzynski from Houghton, Megan Sniffin-Marinoff from the Archives and Deb Wallace from Knowledge and Library Services agreed to use of images from their collections and provided valuable feedback.
