The Making of Modern Michigan
Browse the Collections
Statewide collaborative project of Michigan libraries; the goal is to create a digital collection about the Michigan history – including 20th century materials usually excluded from library digitization projects. The first digital resources are available on the web through Browse the Collections, and the collection will continue to grow.

Michigan County Histories and Atlases
The Michigan County Histories and Atlases Digitization Project is comprised of 428 digitized titles (many composed of multiple volumes) published before 1923.

General Land Office Platts
General Land Office (GLO) plat maps are derived from original surveyor notes of the State of Michigan. The survey was conducted in the early to mid 1800's.

Library of Congress Panoramic Map Collection
The panoramic map was a popular cartographic form used to depict U.S. and Canadian cities and towns during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Historical Census Browser
The data presented here describe the population and economy of U.S. states and counties from 1790 to 1960. The available data differ somewhat from decade to decade, according to what was collected in the census and the items chosen for transcription to electronic form.
