Percent for Art
University of Oregon
The Percent for Art Statewide Digital Collection and Database is a grant-funded project in collaboration with the Oregon Arts Commission. Currently, the database offers access to over 3900 items, encompassing a 30-year period, and reflecting artworks in 105 state projects around Oregon.

Travel Journal and Album of Collected Papers of William Tennent III, 1740 – 1777
University of South Carolina-Thomas Cooper Library
This online collection contains William Tennent's Travel Journal and Album. The journal covers Tennent's trek though the S.C. back-country, at times in the company of William Henry Drayton and Rev. Oliver Hart in an effort to persuade Loyalist "Tories" to join the Patriot cause. The album contains papers documenting Tennent's life as a Presbyterian minister in the Colonies of New Jersey and Connecticut, the courtship of his wife despite her mother's objections, and his 1772 arrival in Charleston, S.C., to serve the Independent or Congregational Church among other topics.

These are just a few of the many outstanding digital collections created by CONTENTdm users.
