Description:

The state of Illinois is many things to many people, and visitors to this very fine digital collection will no doubt discover new things about the Land of Lincoln. Created by a dedicated team at the Illinois State Library, these collections cover everything from the planned community of Park Forest to the evolution of the O'Hare International Airport. Visitors can search the entire collection at their leisure and they can also just wander through the various thematic collections of documents as they see fit. There are some unexpected gems here, such as the "Oral Histories of Centralia" collection. In this collection, visitors can listen to residents of Centralia speak about their lives and their town via interviews conducted in 1975. Moving on, the site also contains several interesting scrapbooks documenting the life of poet Vachel Lindsay created by his sister, Frances Hamilton.
