Clay County Archives and Historical Library ~ Liberty, Missouri

Preserving the Past for the Present

Project Coordinator: Tony Meyers

This project is working to digitize many of the historical records that are in the Archives’ collection.  Maps, newspapers, historical government records, obituaries, books, photographs and various other documents are being imaged.  Vintage film footage, video programs, audio recordings and microfilm based documents are being converted to digital format.  The digital collection is being expanded to include content that was not previously available at the Archives.  Information is being added to the electronic index to enable searching of and easy access to the digital collection.  Electronic backup files are being created to ensure that important historical documents will not be lost.
