Digital Collections

Lincoln University’s digital collection, History Resources Online, was born in 2003, when a grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) funded the preservation microfilming and digitization of the student newspapers, dating back to 1925. The microfilms went to the Pennsylvania Archives in Harrisburg for storage and public access, and the electronic files were made accessible online. Thanks primarily to two other PHMC grants, the online digital collection has grown since then and now also includes Lincoln University materials hosted on the HBCU Library Alliance's Digital Collection Celebrating the Founding of the Historically Black College and University.
