The Missouri Hub (MoHub) of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), to which the MSU Libraries contributes its Digital Collections records, has recently added several more items to the DPLA catalog. Among these are newer collections from MSU, such as the Bryan T. E. Bisney Collection and several additional finding aids for archival collections.
The DPLA ties together records from across the country into a unified portal for searching, which are contributed by libraries, archives, and museums alike, many of which are connected by service hubs (like MoHub). DPLA includes various ways of searching records also, including by map or by timeline. Other contributors to DPLA include HathiTrust, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), Library of Congress, the Smithsonian, Internet Archive, ARTStor, and more. MoHub participants include the Missouri State Archives, Kansas City Public Library, the State Historical Society of Missouri, St. Louis University, Missouri History Museum, and more, including all participants in Missouri Digital Heritage.
Missouri Hub records are on track to be updated quarterly, so keep an eye on DPLA and on the Digital Collections site for more collections in the future. If you have any questions, please contact Shannon Mawhiney (417-836-8977).
