Alaska Digital Library (2022)

This site includes a huge number of photos and video clips, most not related to the Siberian. However it also includes a few rare video clips as well as many photos of the early Siberians. To go to their search pagechick here.

To save people time, I went through the site doing various searches and have included direct links below to pictures and videos that I thought might be of interest to Siberian fanciers. This does not include all the pictures. I've divided the pictures into two catagories; those that have some kind of definite Siberian connection and those that are sleddog related but May ore may not be Siberians. They are listed in alphabetical order by the title listed on the Alaska Digital Library site.

Description: "Leonhard Seppala and his 9 powered dog team."
Note: I question the time1896-1939 period listed on the site for this photo. This appears to be the same team or at least time period (1947-1952) as the video below titled "Leonhard Seppala mushing dogs near Chatanika, 1947-1952." Since these dogs look more of the type Seppala was running in the later time period I think the 1947-1952 period might be more correct for this photo.
