Welcome to the Connecticut Digital Archive! The CTDA is a service of the University of Connecticut Libraries and developed in collaboration with the Connecticut State Library. Our primary focus is to provide digital preservation services to Connecticut-based non-profit cultural and memory organizations, including libraries, archives, galleries and museums.

The first public phase of the Connecticut Digital Archive launched on November 13, 2013 and featured the Thomas J. Dodd Papers - Series VII: Nuremberg Trial documents  from the University of Connecticut’s Archives and Special Collections.

Since then, thousands of other digital resources have been added to the archive from multiple institutions, including Trinity College Library, Connecticut Historical Society, and the Fairfield Museum and History Center.  Others are busy preparing their digital resources for preservation and access. A complete list of participating institutions appears on the right hand side of this page.

Additional collections will be added to the CTDA in the coming months including content from Connecticut History Online. We encourage our visitors to check back often as new sites and participants are added. To learn more about the CTDA and its programs and services follow the CTDA News blog.
