The following collections have been digitized and are now available on ExploreUK and the Kentucky Digital Library. Many thanks to everyone who played a role in providing access to this content.

This collection was suggested by a UK sociologist and it dovetails nicely with the Action in Appalachia: Revealing Public Health, Housing, and Community Development Records in the UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center project that Ida Sell is managing. The publication is divided into 13 units:
Frontier Nursing University Quarterly Bulletins, Vol. 90, No. 2, Summer 2015 and Vol. 90, No. 3, Fall 2015

This collection consists of color slides taken by Karl Raitz, documenting rural and urban architecture, landmarks, manufacturing, resources, and demographics throughout the regions of Kentucky.

These letters comprise correspondence written by Lambert Luten, a Civil War Union solider, to his brother, Hiram, and his parents, Berteld and Gezinna Luten.

This collection comprises stereographs that document the Louisville Tornado of 1890 taken by George Barker.
