The collection offers all members of the community free keyword searching and page-by-page access to digitized reproductions of Michigan county histories and atlases as a resource for historical and genealogical research. The collection is made possible, in part, through a generous Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant. Additional funding was provided by Michigan Council of Library Directors institutions and a Michigan Digitization and Preservation for Access grant. Titles were selected from Frances Loomis's Michigan Biography Index (Detroit: Detroit Public Library, 1946), William Miles' Michigan Atlases and Plat Books (Lansing: State Library Services, 1975), Bentley Historical Library holdings, and the Research Publications microfilm publication County and Regional Histories of the Old Northwest.
