The A.T. Still University—Kirksville (Missouri) College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Museum of Osteopathic Medicine and International Center for Osteopathic History received a grant to support the museum’s efforts to digitize its collection.
The $2,500 grant from the Missouri Humanities Council will support the museum’s “Osteopathic Collection Inventory” project focusing on the inventory and digitization of about 1,300 early matriculation and business records of the founding school of osteopathic medicine, personal/professional papers, and scrapbooks.
The museum’s collection includes more than 80,000 objects, photographs, documents, and books dating from the early 1800s to the present, with the bulk of content dating from 1870-1940.
“This additional funding from the Missouri Humanities Council will help further our goal of a fully computerized inventory of the collection and bring a greater portion of the museum’s collection to patrons worldwide,” says Debra Loguda-Summers, the project director, in a statement from the school.
