The "Miscellaneous Items" category consists of more than 80,000 descriptions of individual images from a variety of the Prints & Photographs Division's photographic, print, drawing, and architectural holdings. These items were singled out for description because copy photographs or digital copies were requested for a publication, exhibition, or other special project that increased demand for the pictures.
Descriptions for such materials originally resided in the "copy negative" shelflist, with subject and creator access through various card catalogs in the Prints & Photographs Reading Room. Starting in 1989, newly cataloged items were described in the online catalog. The data from many of the card catalogs have now been transferred into the online catalog.
