The West Texas Digital Archives, an online digital repository of significant historical materials belonging to the members of the Abilene Library Consortium (ALC), is now available online at http://wtda.alc.org/. This virtual collection of more than 44,000 preserves and provides access to valuable historical resources previously unavailable to the general public.
The Archives contains photographs, newspapers, yearbooks, letters, oral histories, periodicals, manuscripts, journals, papers, maps, directories, pamphlets and more, as well as audio files.
The West Texas Digital Archives makes it possible for these rare historical resources to be used by a wide range of people regardless of geographical limits. These materials will be useful to the casual browser, the school child and the scholarly researcher, all from the convenience of their computer screen.
