The IDHH is a portal to a wealth of digital primary source materials contributed by archives, historical societies, libraries, and museums from around the state of Illinois. The IDHH is also the organization whose infrastructure makes the portal possible. We are a service hub for the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) and gather resources for the DPLA to share with people around the world. The IDHH has worked with the DPLA to build the portal to resources from around the Prairie State.
Illinois Highlights is the IDHH collections blog. We post about new collections, feature materials relevant to Illinois and national history, and celebrate the diversity of the state and the richness of its cultural heritage. We invite you to recommend your collections or ideas for new posts. To do so, contact us.
