AHC Digital Collections

The Arkansas History Commission has a number of digital collections online. Our Doc a Day collection highlights Arkansas during the Civil War and the collections contains hundreds of documents and photographs that currently span 1861-1864. We will continue to add 1865 documents and photographs to this collection through April. To access that collection, please visit: http://www.ark-ives.com/doc-a-day/ .

The Arkansas Digital Ark-Ives is another collection of online digital material. This project currently contains all five of Arkansas's constitutions, historic maps, resource guides, educational lesson plans, World War I material, Arkansas postcards, the history of the Arkansas state flag and music from the Ozark Folk Life and Culture collection. The Arkansas Digital Ark-Ives project is ongoing and we are currently working to add several more collections in the coming months, including a collection highlighting Arkansas's multicultural history, women's history and in celebration of our 110th birthday in 2015, we will be adding a collection that will showcase a variety unique material picked by our staff. We're excited about our upcoming additions! To view our current online collections, please visit http://cdm16790.contentdm.oclc.org/ .
