The Monroe County Library System Digital Collections provides access to print, pictorial, and audio collections. In addition to providing access to materials, the digital collection enables the library to preserve materials by limiting use of the originals.
About the Digitial Collections
The Library has created a digital version of a portion of our collection materials. Those considered for digitization are the most rare or delicate and those that would be unavailable unless shared digitally. The digital collection is an expanding and dynamic assembly of various items relating to Monroe County, Michigan history and include or will soon add photographs, manuscripts, maps, sound recordings, and books.
Some of the digital collections have collection guides. These guides provide descriptions of the material and include information on where they are housed, background information, aquisition information, and any historical information.
We provide online research and reference services and make the digital collection available for learning, teaching, and research. The Library promotes the use of digital library standards and practices.
