Digital Collections

Now Just a Click Away

The St. Louis Mercantile Library is proud of its vast physical holdings as well as its long history of providing access to these materials to as many researchers as possible. Part of this work has included digitization efforts for the last several years, spanning multiple forms of technology. As the Mercantile Library works towards making the digital experience as cohesive as possible for our users, we invite you to use this landing page to interact with our collections and with us across the web!

Below, you will find links to some of our most popular digital collections and social media pages. Also be sure to explore the directories local to this site, where you will find many PDF digital finding aids and collection pages that can help to provide context for both digital items as well as items not yet available online.
