Welcome to the NOBLE Digital Heritage
NOBLE Digital Heritage, a project of the North of Boston Library Exchange, Inc. (NOBLE) and our member libraries, is a collection of resources documenting the rich social and cultural history of our member communities.
To date, our libraries have contributed over 6,000 items to the collection. The majority of these items are images, dating from the mid-nineteenth century to today. The collections also include audio recordings from oral history projects, as well as maps and publications. NOBLE Digital Heritage will continue to grow as currently participating libraries contribute new resources and new libraries join the project. We hope you will visit us often.
NOBLE Digital Heritage resources are also available through the Digital Commonwealth and the Digital Public Library of America.
The NOBLE Digital Heritage includes collections from the following libraries:
