A library’s collection is usually considered to be the books in the library, and patrons have to visit the library to see that collection. In this 21st century, however, the library is now able to share some of the resources we have in our branches digitally through the Internet.
The Midwest Genealogy Center is full of genealogy and historical resources that are now being digitized and made available through cooperative projects with Familysearch and the Missouri State Archives.
Plat books are a treasure trove for genealogists, providing land ownership information on ancestors.
