Connecticut History Online Tops 15,000 Digital Sources

Connecticut History Online (CHO) is a digital collection of over 15,000 digital primary sources, together with associated interpretive and educational material.   Perhaps not widely known, CHO features a collaboration with the Encyclopedia of Connecticut History Online (ECHO) to serve the needs of scholars, K-12 and post-secondary teachers and students, genealogists, and the general public. The four lead CHO partners - the Connecticut Historical Society, Connecticut State Library, Mystic Seaport, and the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at UConn - represent  libraries, museums and historical societies, encompassing the three major communities that preserve and make accessible historical collections in Connecticut.  Participating institutions also include the Hartford History Center, New Haven Museum and Stonington Historical Society.
