Old Dominion University Libraries Digital Collections

Digital Collections Website Update: We are currently in the process of transferring our collections to this new website so not all of our collections appear right now. We will be adding them on an ongoing basis so please check back periodically for updates. If you need assistance with a collection that is not available on the website, please contact us.

The digital collections of the Old Dominion University (ODU) Libraries include rare and unique images, documents, oral histories, and video from our Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA). The collections listed under Community Collections and University Archives are from our collection guides/finding aids. To browse items from these collections, you will need to select either the Community Collections or University Archives tile to see the individual collections they contain.

Files that are downloaded from this site are low resolution access copies. If you need higher resolution images for publication, please contact us.

The university’s yearbooks have been digitized and are available in ODU Digital Commons, along with the scholarly and creative works of the faculty and students.
