Welcome to the Sowing Culture Blog, an experiment created by the staff of the IMLS Digital Collections and Content project at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Sowing Culture is inspired by the work done at shorpy.com and by the recent efforts by the Library of Congress’ American Memory project and the Smithsonian Institution to share their collections through Flickr Commons.

At Sowing Culture we’ll offer our readers regular selections from the over 224 cultural heritage collections comprised of over 335,000 items we’ve gatthered into our repository. These digital collections have been funded by the Institute of Library and Museum Services, a a Federal agency that fosters innovation, leadership, and a lifetime of learning. Over the next year we’ll be continuing to add new materials to the IMLS DCC collections and look forward to highlighting the interesting, unique and rich cultural heritage that our partners have made available through the project.
