About Iowa Heritage Digital Collection


The Iowa Heritage Digital Collection is an online repository of Iowa history and culture, maintained by State Library of Iowa,  which brings together digital resources of Iowa libraries, museums, historical societies and other cultural institutions to enhance access to and preserve long–term accessibility of these valuable materials.


Cultural institutions which can create collections to deposit include:

  • Libraries of all types
  • Historical societies
  • Museums
  • Organizations with historical collections

Smaller institutions, including local historical societies and museums, may choose to partner with their local public library or a larger museum.
