Abraham Lincoln Historical Digitization Project (Lincoln/Net)

The Abraham Lincoln Digitization Project (Lincoln/Net)
offers research materials from Abraham Lincoln's
Illinois years (1830-1861), supplemented by resources
from Illinois' early years of statehood (1818-1829).

Researchers may search the collections using a toolbar
(text, image, video, sound, interactive resource, or all)
at the top of every page. The site also offers a selection
of interpretive materials, including a Lincoln biography
and discussions of eight major historical themes.

Lincoln/Net, based at Northern Illinois University,
collaborates with the University of Chicago, the
Newberry Library, the Chicago Historical Society,
Illinois State University, the Illinois State Archives,
Lewis University, and Knox College.
