West Texas Digital Archives

The West Texas Digital Archives is a collaborative digital repository project of the Abilene Library Consortium in partnership with libraries, museums, and other institutions from across the region. We invite you to explore the collections of partnering institutions.

The repository contains over 100,000 unique historical photographs, newspapers, yearbooks, letters, oral histories, periodicals, manuscripts, journals, documents, maps, audio/video files, and more.

This ongoing project is supported by the member institutions of the Abilene Library Consortium. Parts of the Archives and specific collections within it have been generously funded by grants from the Dodge Jones Foundation, the Dian Graves Owen Foundation, the Shelton Family Foundation, the Legett Foundation, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, the Community Foundation of Abilene, the Coleman County Foundation, the Tocker Foundation, and others.

The Abilene Library Consortium is grateful for the partnership and assistance of The University of North Texas Libraries to digitize and make these resources available online to users around the world. Our long and fruitful collaboration is committed to building sustainable, high-quality research collections. We are honored to include our collections as part of The Portal to Texas History.
