Digital Collections

A growing amount of Mount Sinai records of permanent historical value are created and managed digitally. The Mount Sinai Archives works to collect records created in digital format and to make its existing holdings available digitally.

Digital Repository

The Mount Sinai Digital Repository is a centralized online application for the management and preservation of digital archival records in a wide variety of file formats. It includes both born-digital records and scanned copies of analog archival holdings. The Archives also maintains a separate secure repository for the management of restricted electronic records. Contact the Archives if you have digital records that you are interested in depositing in the Repository.

Image Database

The Mount Sinai Image Database is a catalog of historic Mount Sinai images dating back to the founding of the Hospital in 1852. Images can be searched by keyword. To request a high-resolution, non-watermarked copy of an image, please contact the Archives.

Digitized Audio Visual Material

The Archives holds a wide collection of historic film and video recordings dating back to the 1930s, including promotional and training films as well as recorded events. Many of these items have been digitized and made available for streaming on our Digitized AV Material page.
