In association with the Connecticut Digital Archive (CTDA), you can now access a portion of our permanent collection online.
The CTDA is a program of the University of Connecticut Library in collaboration with the Connecticut State Library. It provides access to digital assets to enhance the research, information, and educational missions of its participating institutions.
Through the CTDA digital preservation repository service, the Lyman Allyn is able to provide access to our resources for scholars, students, and the general public for free.
Featured on the CTDA website, you will find a variety of objects in our collection from the 18th century through the 20th century. Accompanying the hi-resolution images are object descriptions and information on the artists.
We know that everyone cannot always make it to the Museum, so this is a way for you to browse through our collection and enjoy. Moving forward, more object information and images will be uploaded to give you access to an even greater variety of art within our collection. We hope you use this feature for your scholarly endeavors but also in your free time to learn a bit more about the Lyman Allyn’s collection and its significance to New London and the surrounding areas.
