What connects you or your family to Illinois? If you have photographs, letters, documents, or objects that connect you to Illinois, you can bring them to the History Harvest to be digitized. Students from UIS will scan, photograph, and otherwise digitize your items to become part of their bicentennial collection. After the harvest is complete, there will be an online collection of the items brought in. You get to keep your items. Once the digitization is done, you can go home with your items.

The event is free and open to the public. If you have an item you consider historic in relation to Illinois, bring it in. The History Harvest will take place at Innovate Springfield, at the corner of 5th and Adam on the Old State Capitol Plaza. Doors open at 10 AM and will go until 2 PM.

To see the results of the 2016 History Harvest, check out the online collection. For more information, visit www.uis.edu/history/historyharvest/ or contact Devin Hunter at 217/206-7432 (dhunte2@uis.edu) or Kenneth Owen at 217/206-7439 (kowen8@uis.edu).
