SHSMO Bringing Digitization Event to Rolla Next Week

Join us in Rolla for a free digitization event focused on African American heritage in the Ozarks!

Hosted by the SHSMO Rolla Research Center, archivists will be available to digitize photographs, letters, pamphlets, postcards, and other materials that speak to African American heritage in the region. Guests will be provided complimentary copies of their digital files. Attendees will also have the opportunity to record an interview with an oral historian about their items, community history, and genealogy.

The event begins at 10 a.m. on August 6 at The Collaboratory in rooms G1-G4 of the Humanities and Social Sciences Building on the Missouri S&T campus. Residents of Phelps, Crawford, Washington, Maries, Dent, Pulaski, and Texas counties, as well as points throughout the northern Ozarks, are invited. The event is free, but registration is required.
