Did you know that Library of Congress offers a series of State Resource Guide finding aids on its website? They’re just getting started, so many states (Missouri, for instance) have not been prepared yet, but the Illinois State Resource Guide is available:

“The digital collections of the Library of Congress contain a wide variety of material associated with Illinois, including manuscripts, broadsides, government documents, books, and maps. This guide compiles links to digital materials related to Illinois that are available throughout the Library of Congress Web site. In addition, it provides links to external Web sites focusing on Illinois and a bibliography containing selections for both general and younger readers.”
