Digital Content Library

Welcome to the DCL 


There are around 300,000 objects representing over fifty collections from across the University of Minnesota. The DCL now offers expanded support for virtually any file type including 3D, PDF, and Microsoft Office documents. 

 A few examples of the types of materials you'll find here include: 

  • teaching collections
  • faculty original research materials
  • musical ensemble performances
  • gallery exhibition archives
  • and much more...


Access to research and creative works from the College of Liberal Arts that are in our Open Collections can also be searched and accessed beyond the University using the OpenDCL.


Watch us grow! We're always more new.
