Where's the Library?

Libraries are not just a place or a thing. Libraries are evolving!

A little bit of nostalgia

Posted by Librarian/Information Professional on October 5, 2008

One of my classmates published a historical collection from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I remembered seeing a Missouri collection a while ago, and was delighted to see it was still there and has grown,  Missouri Digital Heritage Collection. This is a fun collection for me, because I love history, especially of places I’ve been (or hope to go to 🙂 I am a Missoui native, so it is nice to see some Missouri information.  http://www.sos.mo.gov/mdh/collections.asp

While I have not found the same sort of collection for Oklahoma, I do enjoy reading the Chronicles of Oklahoma. This journal has been digitized and is searchable. http://www.okhistory.org/publications/COOonline.html

Additionally, Oklahoma State University has made many Oklahoma publications available http://digital.library.okstate.edu/

It is interesting for me to see the different approaches that these two states have taken toward history and what they have chosen to digitize. Oh there is lot’s more out there, you know on the web, but this is what I found that interested me. Who knows, you might enjoy some history, too!
