The people in charge of a project called Digital Past have managed to get more than 30 organizations to weave their resources together to form a colorful Web site of Illinois history.

Rome wasn’t built in a day, nor was an online collection of 105 years’ worth of association publications. But a team of Georgia librarians had the stamina for a marathon project that lasted 2 years.
