Oklahoma is a OK...as long as you're not expecting too much from the online content of the Oklahoma State Archives
  
There's a modest amount of good digital stuff to be found here.
 
A selection of archived Collection Highlights has  descriptions of mostly offline content, but one worthwhile online document:
 
Index to Oklahoma Confederate Pension Records  includes full name, spouse's name, date of death, and microfilm identifcation information.
 
At a site called Oklahoma Crossroads: Documents and Images  you'll find some, er, documents and images.  These are small but useful collections, and include:
  • Federal Publications About Oklahoma
  • 100 Years of Oklahoma Governors
  • Oklahoma Authors
  • Oklahoma Postcards
  • Oklahoma State Government Publications *
  • Tulsa Race Riot Documents
  • Cultural Crossroads (Mostly radio programs, with a few documents as well)
  • Oklahoma State Archives Finding Aids
  • Oklahoma Almanacs
  • Ada Lois Sipuel v Board of Regents University of Oklahoma, 1948
  • (the first African-American woman admitted to the University of Oklahoma law school in 1948)
There is also a series of "Virtual Exhibits" here -- online slide shows (which I find mildly annoying for some reason) that include:
  • Bonnie and Clyde
  • Farm Security Administration Photos
  • OK State Capitol
  • Rationing in WWII
  • Firefighters

At the Oklahoma Historical Society  you'll find yet more descriptions of offline materials, along with a few nice online gems, especially for family history research:
