Digital Prairie Collections

Digital Prairie provides open access to Oklahoma’s documents, images, publications and historical archives. It brings together Oklahoma’s own collection of unique digital content spanning more than 100 years of history from the 46th State. The resource areas found in the Digital Collection include documents, photographs, newspapers, reports, pamphlets, posters, maps, audio/visual and more. 

Some collections are solely attributed to the work of librarians, archivists and content managers at the Oklahoma Department of Libraries (ODL). Others, such as the collections providing citizens access to digitized state government publications and forms, are joint projects between the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) and the Oklahoma Department of Libraries (ODL)Digital Prairie was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Oklahoma Department of Libraries.
