What is dLOC?
From its founding, the Digital Library of the Caribbean, or dLOC, has developed to provide access to collections, as well as a collaborative network to support Partners, scholars, educators, and broader publics.
dLOC is a collection of collections
Over 4 million pages of newspapers, maps, photographs, correspondence, scholarship, and teaching resources are freely available online via dloc.com.
dLOC is a community-driven effort
With content shared by nearly 80 partners, dLOC’s collections depend on many individual and institutional efforts to process, digitize, and describe materials.
Sharing Partner Collections
As a digital library, dLOC can share collections without removing them from their home institutions. Shown here are efforts to scan materials from the Biblioteca Nacional de Cuba José Martí, the Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator in Miami, and the Archivo Histórico de Vieques.

dLOC brings people together
Through online workshops, professional development institutes, and outreach events, dLOC extends beyond collections to strengthen our community.
