This new blog will highlight digital collections that have been contributed to the Illinois Digital Heritage Hub and will be updated biweekly. These collections come from the rich and diverse group of institutions that contribute their metadata to the IDHH. Contributors are made up of libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, and many other great institutions from around the state of Illinois.
In these collections you will find diaries chronicling the first hand experience of residents of Illinois, photographs documenting the changing cities and towns, and newspapers that give a glimpse into everyday life of years gone by. All of these and more can be found through the Digital Public Library of America, as well as highlighted here on the IDHH Highlights blog. Explore the rich cultural heritage of Illinois with us!
