The Connecticut Digital Archive (CTDA), the cultural heritage archive for Connecticut, is being collaboratively developed by the University of Connecticut Libraries and the Connecticut State Library. The CTDA platform is designed to enable libraries, museums, archives, and organizations to maintain their digital objects in a preservation-oriented repository.

Participants may also elect to have their own presentation layer hosted by the CTDA and run on the Islandora/Fedora application set. Other participants may choose to use the CTDA’s preservation services but will create their own presentation site.  Any content related to Connecticut history and culture will be indexed and presented through Connecticut History Online, the resource for digital Connecticut history. And soon CTDA content will be indexed by and made available through the Digital Public Library of America (
