Collaborating with SHSI, libraries, schools, and newspaper publishers, we believe we can engage other like-minded Iowans to join us in our mission of preserving history as recorded in the pages of Iowa’s newspapers, and making that history easily accessible to communities across Iowa.
Not Seeing YOUR Community's History Represented?
Advantage Archives is an Iowa company. The owners and employees are all Iowans. We live, work, and play right here in Iowa. We have a long-standing relationship with the State Historical Society of Iowa, and other state agencies… and a deep-rooted affinity for our history. With the introduction of the IAhistory initiative, the team at Advantage Archives has the privilege of taking an even more active role in preserving and providing access to the “first draft of Iowa’s history”. The message and the mission is clear: “Ensure the preservation and accessibility of the history contained within Iowa’s newspapers”
