Forsyth Digital Collections Website has a New Look!

8/21/17 - We are excited to announce that the Forsyth Digital Collections website upgrade has been completed!

You can check it out here:

The new interface is designed with the user in mind and plays well with mobile. Navigation and searching have been improved. Multi-media collections are now streamable within the browser. Additionally, each collection is now linked to a dashboard that shows how many people have viewed the collection. This dashboard highlights the fact that our digital collections are important to students, faculty, and the community at large.

Forsyth Digital Collections showcases digitized collections maintained by the University Archives and Special Collections. Many collections are the result of community collaborations with other institutions. We strive to support the educational and research mission of the University and the Library by providing access to digital collections for faculty, students, community members, and the world at large, in a way that promotes the Special Collections, University Archives, and scholarly works of Fort Hays State University faculty and students. The digital collections seek to encourage faculty scholarship, increase accessibility of existing collections, preserve physical collections, and drive traffic to the physical collections of the library. Special thanks to Patty Nicholas and Cyndi Landis for all their help!

For questions please contact Digital Curation Librarian, Elizabeth Chance, M.L.I.S at or (785) 628-5713
