Community Contributions

Description

Only a small portion of the materials documenting the Astrodome's history are held by archival institutions. For other items and collections, we have established the Community Contributions collection. Individuals and groups may ask Astrodome Memories partners to digitize their items at one of our community scanning events or can make arrangements to have them scanned for contribution to the Astrodome Memories site. While we can't share some items, due to copyright and permissions issues, we will do our best to make items available for the community to enjoy.
