The Plains to Peaks Collective – a partnership of the Wyoming State Library and the Colorado State Library – has added new Wyoming and Colorado historic collections to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).

The latest Wyoming additions are from the University of Wyoming Art Museum. The collections shared with the DPLA comprise items from their ethnographic art collection including a collection of 20th century sculptures, tools and other miscellaneous carvings from Easter Island. These first items shared with the DPLA are just a small sample of the Art Museum’s rich collection of 8,000 objects which they plan to share more of in the future.

New Colorado partners include:

  • The American Alpine Club
  • The University of Colorado, Art Museum
  • Colorado State University Libraries
  • Mountain Scholar
  • University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Strauss Health Sciences Library
  • University of Colorado Colorado Springs, Kraemer Family Library

With the latest additions, the Plains to Peaks DPLA hub includes more than 180,000 items, including selections from the American Heritage Center and University of Wyoming. The State Library funds Wyoming’s participation in DPLA.
