Home  >  Digital Archives
The Digital Archives Partnership is a collaboration between LitSite Alaska and the Alaska's Digital Archives.  Alaska's Digital Archives present a wealth of historical photographs, albums, oral histories, moving images, maps, documents, physical objects, and other materials from libraries, museums and archives throughout our state. Alaska's LitSite provides narrative content that supports the digital images along with links for more information on the subject and a list of books and visual materials available in libraries throughout Alaska.
Land Sea Air
Alaska is a place of wild extremes, whether it be climate, geography, seismic activity, or oceanography.
People of the North
Alaskans commonly share the belief that they're a different breed, perhaps more resilient, more adventurous than other Americans.
Community Life
Gold-rush boomtowns, ancient Native villages, railroad camps, and timber towns are threads in the tapestry of life in the North.
The wealth of natural resources was an initial attraction for outside interests seeking riches of gold, copper, salmon, and oil in the Far North.
By European standards, Alaska is still a babe, its history of non-Native settlement spanning only a few centuries, and its largest city less than ten decades old.
