MeL Michigana allows you to explore Michigan's heritage through photographs, diaries, oral histories, local records and historical data.
MeL Michigana contains the collections of The Digitization for Preservation and Access grant program - a statewide effort to digitize valuable and significant local and state-related information held in Michigan libraries and make such resources easily available via the Michigan eLibrary (MeL). It was funded by a FY 2005 allocation to the Library of Michigan from the Michigan Legislature. Ten projects were granted funding. In addition, MeL Michigana contains large digital collections such as the Making of Modern Michigan, the Archives of Michigan Image Collection and the Walter Reuther Library Digital Collections.
MeL Michigana provides websites of interest to anyone seeking historical data about Michigan on topics such as logging, maritime history, bridges, and archaelogy, as well as general facts about the state.
