The Alliance Community Collections is a shared digital archive that features Core Members’ museum collections and virtual exhibits that are unlikely to be seen on exhibit at our member museums and centers. In the past two years, staff and volunteers have digitized more than 2,000 objects, and are adding to the website year-round.
Participating Core Members whose collections are searchable on the archives include: Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture, Chinese-American Museum of Chicago, DANK Haus German American Cultural Center, Dominican American Midwest Association, Ethiopian Community Association of Chicago, Japanese American Service Committee, Swedish American Museum, and the Ukrainian National Museum.
View the museum collections and virtual exhibits at http://ccacommunitycollections.omeka.net.
