Louisa H. Bowen University Archives & Unique Collections: Online Resources

Researching Online

Like other repositories, the Louisa H. Bowen University Archives & Unique Collections department is engaged in digitizing many of its unique paper format holdings to make them available to researchers across the world at any time.  This cumulative effort will allow persons living at a considerable distance from Edwardsville to gain convenient access to many of the materials we preserve.  It will also benefit those who are unable to visit in person during our regular hours.  Researchers interested in conducting, or at least initiating their work remotely, may consult each of the links listed below for information about our present digital holdings.
