The Oregon Historical Society is dedicated to making Oregon’s long, rich history visible and accessible to all. The Society’s Digital Collections are a vital means to provide that access. For more than a century, the Oregon Historical Society has served as the state’s collective memory, preserving a vast collection of artifacts, photographs, maps, manuscript materials, books, films, and oral histories. The research library, museum, digital platform, educational programming, and historical journal make Oregon’s history open and accessible to all. The Society exists because history is powerful, and because a history as deep and rich as Oregon’s cannot be contained within a single story or point of view. A critical component of the Society’s mission is to “inspire curiosity about all the people, places, and events that have shaped Oregon,” and providing free and open access to our collections is key to executing that mission.
