Digital Culture of Metropolitan New York (DCMNY) provides online access to digital collections of libraries, archives, museums and historical societies located in and around New York City. Participating institutions are located in the following counties of New York State: Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, and Westchester. The collections include photographs, maps, letters, postcards, manuscripts, scrapbooks, programs from events, catalogues, memorabilia and ephemera, and much more. New collections will be added over the coming months, and contributors will be adding new material to existing collections.
DCMNY is not a curated collection. It is intended to serve as a hosting service for members of the Metropolitan New York Library Council to make their content available online, as well as an on-ramp to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). Many of the collections in DCMNY will also be available in DPLA, courtesy of the Empire State Digital Network, the DPLA service hub for New York State.

"The 5 Minute Librarian has compiled some of the top groups in many different areas of public librarianship. This list is no where complete (it is really hard to find these groups without knowing someone who is in them), so please post in the comments any additional groups to be included on this list!
Also note that I did not include any regional groups..."
Although this list has been compiled with public librarians in mind, topics can be relevant for any field of librarianship.
