While it seems that almost every state historical museum or library has set up a digital collection or twelve, coordinating access to these lovely offerings has proved to be a bit tough. Fortunately for those collections created in the state of Missouri, there is the Missouri Digitization Planning Project, which has created this fine site. Sponsored with monies from the Institute of Museum & Library Services, Virtually Missouri serves as a place where institutions can place their digitized collections, and not surprisingly, the generally curious public can take a look at their creations. From the homepage, visitors can take a look at the featured collection, or delve right into the other materials by searching the catalog of collections or by just browsing a list of the collections. The offerings here are quite impressive, as they include exhibits on the African American community of northeast Missouri created by the Hannibal Free Public Library and images from the now-defunct newspaper, the St. Louis Globe Democrat.
