About Missouri Digital Heritage

About MDH

Missouri Digital Heritage is a collaborative effort that dramatically expands the amount of information available online about Missouri’s past. In 2007, Secretary of State Robin Carnahan proposed this landmark initiative to further Missourians’ access to information about the history of our state and local communities.

Through Missouri Digital Heritage, the Missouri State Archives and the Missouri State Library are assisting institutions across the state in digitizing their records and placing them online for easy access. We invite you to enter our website and to join with us in celebrating our collective past.

Missouri Digital Heritage also offers classroom curricula based on the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s standards to enable students and others to understand our heritage through the use of primary materials. Teachers, parents, and students can retrieve educational materials directly from the website.

Some content made available through Missouri Digital Heritage is provided by LSTA (Library Services & Technology Act) funds. These funds are distributed by the federal Institute of Museum & Library Services and administered through the grant programs of the Missouri State Library, a division of Secretary of State John R. Ashcroft’s office. Institutions wishing to participate in this collaborative digitization effort may contact [email protected].
