The Bruce C. Clarke Library Digital Repository was created to preserve rare and historic materials from the library’s collection. These digital resources include selected material from the library’s Rare Book collection as well as other literature documenting the history of Fort Leonard Wood. All publications, including “The Guidon”, Fort Leonard Wood’s weekly publication since 1966, are freely available to Military members, their families and the public. The goal of this collection is to allow access to items considered too fragile for normal use and to provide users access to information on the history of Fort Leonard Wood.
