Special Collections has over one thousand posters from World Wars I and II. More than half of the posters are from countries other than the United States. The U.S. World War I posters promote recruitment, savings stamp and bond drives, patriotism, and conservation. There are also a few anti-war posters in the collection.
The posters are searchable in the MERLIN catalog. These records include the title and description only. Links to poster images are included when available. Search MERLIN using the links below:

Posters require extra work space, and extra staff time to get out. Please email SpecialCollections@missouri.edu at least 24 hours in advance if you would like to work with posters. The reading room is very busy with classes and other student projects at this time of the year, and we need to be sure that there is space for you to work.
