In this digital collections repository, UMKC Libraries' Digital Projects department provides access to digitized materials and born-digital content physically held in LaBudde Special Collections, University Archives and Marr Sound Archives, at the University of Missouri – Kansas City University Libraries. Content in this digital repository is intended for a broad research community and is made publicly available whenever possible. In certain cases, access may be restricted due to copyright, licensing, or other concerns. The Digital Projects department actively engages in harmful content remediation and DEIA assessments of digital collections content. If you see an error in our repository, or have a concern about content, please contact us: digital.projects@umkc.edu

Please note: LaBudde Special Collections, Marr Sound Archives, and University Archives all provide digitization services, including image reproductions and audio duplication. All requests are governed by department policies and fees, applicable copyright laws, and any other restrictions on specific collection materials.

UMKC Digital Collections is built upon the Islandora open-source software framework. Islandora combines Drupal (content management system), Fedora (digital asset management architecture), and Solr (enterprise search platform) to provide a comprehensive platform for managing, delivering, and accessing digitized materials. UMKC Digital Collections is maintained in collaboration with the University Missouri Digital Library Working Group, which provides oversight for digital projects among the four campus libraries of the University of Missouri. Development of UMKC Digital Collections is made possible by a grant provided by the Martha Jane Starr Field of Interest Committee. Programming support is provided by Discovery Garden, Inc. and the University of Missouri Library Systems Office.
