The University of Illinois at Chicago Library provides access to digitized copies of many items in its collections, especially images. These collections are publicly accessible. Images from many of the collections are made available in coordination with CARLI, the statewide consortium of libraries. The collections of UIC Library and other CARLI insitutions (such as the Newberry Library, the Southern Illinois University campuses, and others) are available at http://collections.carli.illinois.edu/. The collections are searchable by key words and browseable.
In addition, to its own collections, the Library subscribes to certain digital image databases. In some instances, the use of the database is restricted to UIC students, faculty, and staff only.
UIC Librarians can offer assistance with finding digitized items as well as with finding out more about the content and context of the materials. Use this guide to determine which collections may be of use to you.
