The purpose of the MSU Digital Library is to produce, maintain, preserve, and provide access to digital collections that support the mission of the University and the Libraries. In particular, the Digital Library strives to support teaching, service and research by developing digital projects that provide greater access to Library collections and other unique University holdings.
To date, digitized materials representing selected holdings in the Manuscripts, University Archives, the Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library, and the Congressional & Political Research Center areas of the MSU Library are accessible through the Digital Library. These include diaries, correspondence, ledgers, photographs, transcripts, sheet music, and other unique materials, as well as publications.
Material continues to be added to existing collections and planning for future digitization projects is ongoing.
