Hundreds of libraries and archives exist online, from university-supported sites to individual efforts. This list contains over 250 libraries and archives. Its worth your while to scroll through the entire list, but at least check out Washington highlights, as selected by the Online Education Database:
- King County Snapshots: This collaborative effort offers 12,000 historical images carefully chosen from thirteen organizations’ collections. These cataloged 19th and 20th century images portray people, places, and events in the county’s urban, suburban, and rural communities that surround Seattle.
- Washington State Digital Archives: The home page offers a search box, but the collections link will reveal the projects undertaken by this state’s digitization program. You can search through materials such as birth records, photographs, physicians’ records and more, and many of these records contain individual images which can be viewed on this website.
- Washington State Digital Collections: This is another collaborative collection that gathers archival materials from statewide public libraries, university holdings, and museums that chronicle this state’s history.
