Volunteer Voices

Volunteer Voices logo

Volunteer Voices provides a central point for accessing digital collections of primary sources (photos, letters, diaries, oral histories, artifacts, etc.) that document the history and culture of Tennessee. This site searches the original Volunteer Voices database, a growing number of digital collections across the state, and the Tennessee Encyclopedia of History and Culture.

Volunteer Voices also provides networking opportunities for Tennessee archivists, librarians, curators, and educators who are involved in digitization projects. Please contact a member of the Digitial Library of Tennessee Committee if you know of new digitization projects or if you have questions about Volunteer Voices.

The original database, Volunteer Voices: The Growth of Democracy in Tennessee, was funded by a National Leadership Grant (2005-2008) from the Institute for Museum and Library Services and administered by the University of Tennessee Libraries.
