UMKC Libraries' Digital Projects department provides access to digitized materials and born-digital content physically held in LaBudde Special Collections, University Archives and Marr Sound Archives. In our digital collections, we have content by and about people of many races, ethnicities, national origins, beliefs, sexualities, gender identities, and disabilities. Historically, most people have been subject to bias, discrimination, and violence. While that history is reflected in some of our collections, we are making appropriate changes to the type of language we use to describe this content, on an ongoing basis.

Presentation of Content
UMKC Digital Collections is built upon the Islandora open-source software framework. Islandora combines Drupal (content management system), Fedora (digital asset management architecture), and Solr (enterprise search platform) to provide a comprehensive platform for managing, delivering, and accessing digitized materials. UMKC Digital Collections is maintained in collaboration with the University Missouri Digital Library Working Group, which provides oversight for digital projects among the four campus libraries of the University of Missouri. Development of UMKC Digital Collections is made possible by a grant provided by the Martha Jane Starr Field of Interest Committee. Programming support is provided by Discovery Garden, Inc. and the University of Missouri Library Systems Office.
