The Virtually Missouri website is part of the Missouri Digitization Planning Project. This site links digital collections from a variety of institutions around the state and showcases their broad array of holdings. The website includes all types of images, papers, audio recordings and objects. The website is growing in popularity as we present it not only to content participants but also to audiences of potential users of the site and the included collections. The site has entered its next phase as a valuable research and education tool. Virtually Missouri also includes a database of collections around the state that may not yet be digitized, or maybe there are no plans to digitize. Our goal is to provide users of the site and researchers with a source for discovering all the interesting collections available in Missouri.

The purpose of the Missouri Digitization Planning Project (MDPP) is to coordinate access to digital collections and exhibits created by the cultural & scientific heritage institutions of Missouri. The project brings together representatives from the archives, historical society, library, and museum communities to achieve this goal; the MDPP vision is for improving access to Missouri's digitized materials. The Missouri Digitization Planning Project provides education on digitization issues and techniques through conferences and workshops.
