In 2015 Oregon Historical Society embarked on an ambitious two-year project to build a digital infrastructure to create, collect, preserve, and facilitate online access to materials from our vast historic collections. Behind the scenes, these digital files are safeguarded using a series of digital preservation workflows, systems, and storage we call the OHS Digital Vault.
OHS Digital Collections provides online public access to a rich variety of materials from the OHS Research Library collections, including items from our manuscript, photograph, film, and oral history collections. Through OHS Digital Collections, we aim to enhance and promote the use of our materials for teaching, learning, and research.

Help support OHS Digital Collections
As part of our ongoing efforts to advance knowledge and inspire curiosity about all the people, places, and events that have shaped Oregon, we are fundraising to enhance and expand our capacity to create access to new materials and improve the infrastructure capable of creating and preserving digital objects for the long term.
