We have many collections stored in archives that may be of great benefit for scholars but have been gifted to us without the financial support to process and digitize for scholarly access and use. Digitization allows easy, searchable access to the materials, and serves to preserve rare and fragile items. If you would like to help shine a light on an otherwise hidden treasure, consider giving to digitize a hidden collection.
Our hidden collections are begging to come out of hiding. In images alone, we have over a quarter of a million images documenting, for example, student life, rural life in the United States, history of transportation, and much more. Here are a few examples of collections we have digitized:
- Robert Gillette Album documenting his experience in the 82nd Airborne
- Significant Pacific Northwest historical photographs
- Fabulous Curtis Prints of 50 Native American Tribes
- Oral history collection of life in the Interior Northwest
- Collection of Asian Art
- Michel J. Denuty Transportation Records and Photos
