IMLS Digital Collections & Content (IMLS DCC)

The IMLS Digital Collections and Content, a collaboration between the IMLS & the University of Illinois Grainger Engineering Library, is an open access, open source project launched in 2002 with the primary goal of providing a single point of access to digital content developed through IMLS National Leadership Grants and selected LSTA-supported collections. The IMLS DCC aggregation brings together cultural heritage collections and exhibits from libraries, museums, and archives throughout the country, “providing both collection-level and item-level access to facilitate searching and browsing and to retain the institutional identities and collection contexts that are vital to how users explore and interact with cultural heritage materials.”   It contains 1,231,917 items, 1,738 collections, and 1,491 institutions.
