Archives Digital Collections

ArcaSearch - Arcasearch offers electronically searchable versions of The Dakota Scientist (the NDSCS newspaper) and Agawasie (the NDSCS yearbook).

Historypin - Historypin  is a crowd-sourced location-based digital history archive that exists as a website and as a mobile app for both Apple and Android.  The archive includes primary source digital photos, video, and audio recordings "pinned" to particular coordinates on Google Maps, accompanied by descriptive and narrative text, such as stories and recollections. At this time, Historypin does not support digitized documents.

Digital Horizons - Digital Horizons is an online treasure house of thousands of images, documents, video, and oral histories depicting life on the Northern Plains from the late 1800s to today. Here you'll find a fascinating snapshot of the lives, culture, and history of the people who shaped life on the prairies.
