Online Collections Catalog
The Cook County Historical Society has begun to put the collections located at our museums online. You can access this information below.
Our online collections catalog works like a library catalog. We have put online a listing of the contents of specific collections. The collections currently online include a complete listing of our Vertical Files (definition here), Obituaries, Oral Histories, Articles and a limited number of photographs, videos and audio. We still have the following collections to put online: artifacts, art, library (published books and media) and maps as well as adding the thousands of photographs still to be scanned and uploaded. Photographs are our current focus and will be added incrementally. For more information on using the catalog click here.
