Catalysts for Community Health (C4CH)

Point of Contact: Jenny Bossaller at
Catalysts for Community Health (C4CH) is a three-year project grant to develop an interdisciplinary community health information curriculum and create a network of practice throughout the Midwest focused on meeting information needs for low-income and rural communities. Specific aims are to create information and curricular resources, develop health information outreach and programming skills with collaborators and students, train a student cohort to lead community health information networks, and expand a community empowerment framework to library education.


Objects: Stories of Immigration and Material Culture

Point of Contact: Jenny Bossaller at
This project documents the items brought by German immigrants to Missouri, or made by German immigrants in Missouri. The end product will be an e-edition with rich metadata built on the Scalar platform combining multimedia (photographs, 3-D images, sound recordings) and GIS. It is a joint collaboration with the Missouri Humanities Council, historic societies, and scholars across the state.
