PA Photos & Documents

PA Photos & Documents (formerly “Access PA Digital Repository”) is a statewide digitization service that utilizes CONTENTdm software product licensed through OCLC.

The service enables the storage and retrieval of digitized collections created by libraries and other organizations throughout Pennsylvania. The primary focus is historic, cultural, and other collections of interest to the citizens of Pennsylvania.

In cooperation with other Pennsylvania agencies, the Office of Commonwealth Libraries is working toward universal access to digitized Pennsylvania historical materials. Participation in this program is open to institutions that participate in POWER Library/Access PA or partners with an institution that participates in POWER Library/Access PA.
