Archives - Digital Horizons

Digital Horizons is an online collection of images from the collections of North Dakota State University, Concordia College, Prairie Public, and the State Historical Society of North Dakota powered by the software, CONTENTdm. The images can include photographs, letters, diaries, maps, newspapers, moving images, and audio files. The project got underway in 2007 and collections appearing online increase daily. Image searches can be refined by institution through the advanced search feature. Inquiries about items should be directed to the contributing institution.
