Who we are

The Gateway to Oklahoma History is a project of the Oklahoma Historical Society Research Division, in partnership with the University of North Texas Libraries' ™ Digital Projects Unit. The mission of the Oklahoma Historical Society is to collect, preserve, and share the history and culture of the state of Oklahoma and its people.

The collections of the OHS Research Division include historical materials in many formats, dating from pre-statehood to the present day. For nearly a decade the Research Division has engaged in digitization initiatives to preserve and share Oklahoma history. The Gateway is our most ambitious digital initiative to date, and is meant to reach a worldwide audience. You can learn more about us by visiting the Research Center.
