Houston Area Digital Archives


Digital preservation makes it possible to catalog, search and browse valuable archival collections in new and innovative ways while saving the original materials from wear and deterioration.

The Houston Area Digital Archives provides open, online access to the rich collections of the Houston Public Library and other community archives. We digitize books, audio and video materials, documents, photographs, manuscripts, maps, memorabilia and more, making them freely available here for research and study.

Please enjoy this opportunity to discover and explore the history we hold and share.
