  Archiving Wheeling 
Archiving Wheeling is an online community designed to showcase the local and regional history collections of the Ohio County Public Library and its heritage partners. The website features stories and images about the contents of each partner’s archival and special collections, building bridges to Wheeling's past.
 
The mission of Archiving Wheeling is to virtually connect these collections, providing a web-based community archive to facilitate access, by researchers and the general public, to materials that document the rich history of our region. It is hoped that greater public awareness of what is available will encourage people to consider donating important archival materials to the appropriate local organization so that these historically significant materials can be properly preserved, housed and accessed locally, where they originated and where they belong.
