Got Illinois Roots? There is a New Hub on the Digital Public Library of America

Illinois Heritage Hub at DPLA
As of January 5, the collections of the Illinois Digital Heritage Hub are live and ready to explore on the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA.)

The newest hub from Illinois represents a collaboration between the Illinois State Library, the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI), Chicago Public Library, and, previously a Content Hub partner, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

According to the announcement, "Like each Service Hub, Illinois brings its own essential mix between unique local stories that help DPLA represent the diversity of experiences across the country and collections of national significance that contribute to our common heritage."

See you soon at Mt. Clemens Public Library!
