Our digital collections are always growing. Alongside the digital periodicals, books, and reference tools in our collection, we work to provide access to our extensive and important digital collections which are comprised of both digitized and born-digital content.
New England's Hidden Histories is a project of the Congregational Library & Archives which has sought to locate, digitize, transcribe, and make freely accessible online the earliest manuscript records of Congregational Churches, Congregationalists, and Congregational organizations. Over the last 15 years, more than 100,000 pages of church records and personal papers have been digitized as part of the project, all of which are now accessible online for students, genealogists, scholars, and anyone interested in New England's early religious, social, and philosophical history.
The digital archive is the home of our digital collections and includes more than 4,000 unique digital objects. Our ever growing digital collections include both digitized and born-digital materials from all across New England spanning the 17th century to the 21st century.
The image collection contains more than 1,300 digitized photographs, prints, and postcards as well as images from books, magazines, and newspapers. Most images are copyright-free and the entire collection may be viewed in our online catalog.
