Local Libraries and Archives....

Below is a list of resources that will be of use to researchers interested in learning more about Greene County.

Drury University Library

The Olin Library includes the Ozarks Folk Life Project and the Special Collections and Archives area. Among the records in Special Collections are the University Archives and papers of notable alumni.

Evangel University

The Evangel University Library houses the official college archives, including photographs, student publications, oral history tapes, and other records. Perhaps Evangel's premiere collection is the O'Reilly Hospital Collection. Evangel University has stood on the site of this World War II hospital since 1954.

Flower Pentecostal Heritage Center

The Flower Pentecostal Heritage Center collects, preserves, and provides access to materials pertinent to the understanding of Assemblies of God history. It reaches this goal through its museum, research center, and a quarterly publication.

Greene County Archives and Records Center

Opened in 1987, the Archives is the central repository for official Greene County records. In addition to its official function the Archives serves as an active county and regional research center.

History Museum on the Square

For over three decades History Museum on the Square (formerly The History Museum for Springfield-Greene County) has worked to preserve the history of our region. The photograph holdings are particularly strong, with more than 20,000 historical photographs preserving images of Springfield from its beginnings. Currently the research room is not open on a daily basis; check the Museum's website for details.

Missouri State University - Special Collections & Archives

There are five units in Special Collections and Archives at Missouri State: The Ozarkiana Collection contains books and manuscript collections dealing with the Missouri Ozarks and Southwest Missourians; the University Archives serves to collect and store the institutional memory of the university; the Ozarks Labor Union Archives contains records of over 100 labor unions in the Ozarks and Missouri; the William Jack Jones French Literature Collection concentrates on French literature; and Rare Books and General Special Collections includes books that are rare, antique, or fragile.

Springfield-Greene County Public Library

Researchers will find a wide range of resources on the culture, arts and history of the Missouri Ozarks, Greene County, and Springfield at the Local History and Genealogy Department. Located at the Library Center, the department also makes a wide range of resources available digitally through their website.
