Genealogy and Local History Community of Interest (GLHCI)

Mission

The mission of the GLH CI shall be to promote the study and acquisition of genealogy and local history resources, in all available formats, in Missouri libraries of all types where these subjects are appropriate; to provide education to librarians and library staff in the recognition, understanding, and appreciation of these materials and electronic resources; and to encourage librarians to improve their abilities to instruct and assist patrons with research needs in these subjects.

Genealogy and Local History Programming

We are interested in providing regional programming and/or activities for GLH members.  If you would like to see such programming or activities offered in your area, or have a great idea for a potential GLH CI program, publication, or other endeavor, please contact us for more information.
