Updated Regional History and Genealogy Digital Collections

Updated Regional History and Genealogy Digital Collections

On Fri., Sept. 20, 2019, Pikes Peak Library District’s Digital Collections will relaunch with a mobile responsive platform. 

This change creates important improvements in accessing and using our digital collections:

  • It is built with mobile devices in mind and will provide responsive formatting when using phones and tablets.
  • The platform conforms to web content accessibility guidelines, allowing patrons of all abilities to fully access our unique content.
  • Patrons will experience improved usability with increased search speed, accuracy, and content delivery.

The web address, however, will remain the same! You can still access the PPLD Digital Collection here.

We look forward to hearing your feedback on our site's fresh new 'do!
