About Heartland Hub

Heartland Hub, formerly Missouri Hub (MOHub), is an unincorporated affiliation of institutions which seeks to improve for the benefit of the public the visibility and relevance of digital collections offered online in Missouri, Iowa, and throughout the Midwest. Heartland Hub aggregates information about digital objects and serves as conduit for passing these descriptive records to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)—which assembles datasets of metadata that make content discoverable through a single search interface and open platform for developers. Check out our FAQ.


Our partners share all or part of their digital content with DPLA. You can browse their content through links to each repository, below, or visit the Heartland Hub portal at DPLA.
