The Sherman Room Digital Archives




Photo Collection


Vintage Postcards

We are also adding local school newspapers to our collection.

Welcome to the digital archives for The Sherman Room at the Mansfield/Richland County Public Library, Mansfield, Ohio. Included in these collections are items that reflect the history of Mansfield and the Richland County area. It is our hope that through this service we will be able to:

  • Provide residents and other users increased access to the library’s collections, including city and county information, unique or rare materials, and historic records that meet research and educational needs.
  • Provide access to materials that can no longer be accessed due to format obsolescence.
  • Protect original records by reducing frequent handling during reference use or reproduction through digitization. Under normal circumstances, digital projects will be for access only, not preservation. However, projects may include a preservation component when continual handling could do irreparable harm to the material.
