Ithaca, NY The OhioLINK Digital Resource Commons (http://drc.ohiolink.edu/) hosts six distinct communities and collections in this DSpace repository that are described as “treasure troves of knowledge” from 17 public and private Ohio campuses. They contain collections that range from WPA Prints by Cleveland Artists to examples of the British costume and scene designer Daphne Dare to the 1914 Archaeological Atlas of Ohio and the Youngstown State University Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Center. Each of these unique sets of resources–and many more—are worth a weekend browse.

Notable are 5,260 images from the Forestry Images Collection that contain beautiful atmospheric photographs of historic Ohio woodland scenes including one of the “bread line” at a 4-H Club Camp:

4-H Club camp for Hocking and Vinton Counties at Clear Creek. Show “bread line.”
