Digital Collections Program

Clark Library’s digital collections program aims to provide access to digitized unique resources that support teaching and learning at the University, support scholarship within and beyond the University of Portland community, and enhance diversity and inclusion at the University through the documentation of diverse perspectives at the University of Portland and in the surrounding community.   

Clark Library’s digital collections may contain historical images or content that are offensive and/or not condoned by the University of Portland. They are included to present an honest account of our history and the source material, but do not reflect the University of Portland values and our commitment towards building a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive campus.  Learn more about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts at the University of Portland.
