Oregon State Library Digital Collections

The Oregon State Library is responsible for gathering state publications from Oregon and ensuring that they are available to all citizens. Alongside those government publications the State Library has also begun to digitize other materials in our library.

Digital Highlights
Creator: Oregon State Library (collector)
The State Library has compiled a number of small digital highlights in the past and will continue to do so on a quarterly basis. These digital highlights are featured in our Letter to Libraries Online electronic newsletter. The featured digital highlight of the quarter can be viewed by going to the Featured Digital Highlight page.
Oregon Government Publications
The Oregon Documents Depository Program supports government transparency and civic education by ensuring consistent and coordinated permanent public access to information published by Oregon state government. These archived documents are maintained by the Oregon State Library as part of the Oregon Documents Depository Program. They are for informational purposes and may not be suitable for legal purposes.
Oregon Maps
This collection includes selected maps that are state publications, either stand-alone or a major part of a set, but not maps excerpted from other publications. It only includes static cartographic materials, chiefly issued as PDFs. It does not include any dynamic GIS data. This collection should not be considered a complete representation of the map publications available from Oregon state agencies. For more information about coordination among state agencies or about GIS data standards, visit the Oregon Geospatial Enterprise Office. To view dynamic geospatial content, visit Oregon ArcGIS Online, or the Oregon Spatial Data Library.
U.S. Government Publications
The State Library's collection of U.S. government publications covers a broad range of subject areas with a focus on Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Areas include:
  • social, economic, and population statistics;
  • health and social services;
  • public policy, law and government;
  • environmental and natural resources.
