About the Digital Maine Repository

The Digital Maine Repository is one of several services of the Maine State Library to facilitate digitization of - and enhanced access to - collections related to Maine history, genealogy, culture and government.

The repository was designed to host a variety of media including books, images, maps and documents, as well as audio and video collections. Since its launch in 2013, partnerships with Maine libraries, historical societies, museums and other local organizations have helped grow the Digital Maine repository collection to include thousands of original source materials that were never before been available online. Examples include:

  • Map collections;
  • Church records;
  • Local histories;
  • Genealogy research;
  • Town reports;
  • Images from Maine communities; and
  • Reports, publications and research created by state agencies

In 2017, the Maine State Library launched a service hub of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) to provide greater exposure to digital collections created and shared by Maine institutions.
