This digital collection of books, pamphlets, and serials representing Arizona agricultural history and rural life from the period 1820 through 1945 was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Administered by Cornell University, the grant provided funding for land grant universities in the United States to digitize rare and fragile items from this period. Scholars and librarians at the University of Arizona identified the materials that were digitized as part of the "Preserving the History of Agriculture & Rural Life: State & Local Literature, Arizona, 1820-1945" project.

The collection consists of approximately 900 items; materials were contributed by University of Arizona Special Collections, Arizona Historical Foundation, Arizona Historical Society, Arizona State University Libraries, Arizona State University Law Library, Arizona State Library, Phoenix Public Library, Arizona State Museum, University of Arizona Law Library, and the City of Mesa Library.
