About the Digital Library
The Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County’s collection of nearly 9 million items is one of the nation’s oldest and largest. To provide greater access to our rare print materials, especially those of local significance, the Public Library continues to expand its digitization project. Using state-of-the art equipment purchased thanks to grants from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), awarded by the State Library of Ohio and additional matching donations, the Library is continually digitizing items and adding them to the Digital Library, thus making them more accessible to the community and to researchers worldwide.
