Darren, Thank you for the reply. I want to focus specifically on the still pictures of US AEF activities in Europe 1917 through 1919, which are stored at College Park, MD. Are photos in this group being digitized ? I thought I read an article recently about digitizing these.
Guide to Federal Records, rg 120,
120.16 STILL PICTURES (GENERAL)
Photographic Prints (4,640 images): Recipients of Allied valor awards, 1917-19 (AC, 1,688 images). Training program of the 116th Engineers, in album, by Capt. H.B. Boise, 1918 (HB, 383 images). Quartermaster oil and gasoline storage facilities in France and Belgium, in album, 1918-19 (GO, 49 images). Areas of France and Belgium occupied by American troops, taken under supervision of Capt.

There is an agreement with HistoryPin and NARA to digitize the WWI AEF photographs and to place some of the motion pictures online. See more information on the NARAtions blog at https://narations.blogs.archives.gov/
