State Library of Oregon Digital Collections include Oregon Government Publications, Oregoniana, and much more.

From the State Library: “We are happy to announce the debut of our new digital collections platform! Using Islandora, with hosting and support from LYRASIS, we migrated all of our Oregon state government publications and added new digital content related to the state. This platform upgrade allows everyone to browse easily by agency, search full text, and access PDF files of publications.

Until this transition, the primary focus of our digital collections has been supporting government transparency and civic education by ensuring consistent and coordinated permanent public access to information published by Oregon state government. With a more flexible platform, we look forward to continuing our commitment to providing access to state government publications and expanding our digital collections to include Oregoniana, Oregon-related federal government publications, and more.
