Stanford’s new Revs Digital Library spotlights the automobile as cultural icon

Stanford’s new Revs Digital Library provides access to hundreds of thousands of images related to the history of auto racing and the cultural significance of the automobile. The website expands research opportunities for scholars and students.

In 2011, Stanford University and The Revs Institute for Automotive Research, Inc. established a partnership designed to provide access to the historic collections curated by The Revs Institute. As a result of this partnership, we are very excited about the recent launch of the new Revs Digital Library, which contains nearly 200,000 images documenting automotive history.

The Revs Digital Library can be found online at: https://revslib.stanford.edu

The collection at Revs currently includes nearly one million images and is constantly growing. Over the next few years we will continue to add to the digital collection so be sure to visit the site often! Our overarching goal is to provide our researchers worldwide with increased access to this one-of-a-kind omnibus of remarkable material.

In addition to database access, Revs can also provide high quality images for publication or research. For more information, please email: library@revsinstitute.org

To learn more about the Revs Digital Library and the partnership with Stanford University Libraries, we are pleased to share this article from the Stanford Report released September 5, 2014. The article also describes the Revs Program at Stanford – a cross disciplinary program fostering connections between automotive history and humanities, the fine arts, social science, design and engineering.

My friends call me a Nerdy Grease Monkey, I've loved cars since I was knee high to a grasshopper but my professional career took me into the United States Marine Corps and the Cyber Security Technology field. Over the past few decades, I have become a self-taught photographer and videographer having my work published in various venues, magazines, and websites. I can be found any given weekend at some sort of automotive event, either in my, Shelby ripping up a track or maybe my Lightning zipping down the 1/4 mile.
