Watch for it Wednesdays: tomorrow’s launch is a big one…

or-150.jpgTomorrow is the 3rd Wednesday, which means the Archives is releasing a new set into Flickr Commons! While all our launches are special, this one bears a brand and marks a great partnership.


For the April 15th launch, we partnered with Oregon Explorer, the natural resources digital library jointly managed by the OSU Libraries and the OUS Institute for Natural Resources, and pulled together 150 of our most stunning historic images of Oregon’s 15 river basins.

Not only are we showcasing natural resources, we are celebrating our state. This collection is more than a collection, it’s an event: our project was also accepted as an official Oregon 150 sesquicentennial project!

Step back in time, explore the state, and tell us what you think.
