How do I download digitized collection materials?

Generally, once you have identified the items from the digitized collection that you wish to download, right-click (or command+click on a Mac) and select, “Save As,” where the item (audio, video, or image) can be saved to your computer. Please note that each file will need to be saved individually.

Please note that if you download items from a Veterans History Project (VHP) collection for use in publication or exhibition, copyright rules still apply, and you will need to obtain permission from the veteran (or their next of kin). Contact VHP at vohp@loc.gov or 888-371-5848.
