WE'VE MOVED

The Central Library location closed Friday, August 30th, 2014 for renovation. During the renovation, the Tulsa and Oklahoma collection is housed at a temporary nonpublic facility at 44th and Sheridan. If you'd like to make an appointment to visit the collection, please see our hours and contact information on the left.

 

TULSA THEN AND NOW APP: MAPPING THE BFC

The community-minded developers with Tulsa Web Devs put together the first-ever Tulsa Hackathon in October 2011.  It was our good fortune to be one of their pilot projects. 

Thanks especially to Matt Galloway of Architactile for primary app development, we made an iPhone app to explore Tulsa history in a brand new way.  We’ve geo-located over 300 of our Beryl Ford Collection images to create the Tulsa Then & Now: Mapping the BFC app.

Find historic photos taken near your current location and compare them to today! Search and browse Tulsa images from the past. Create and share your own custom Beryl-O-Gram.

Get the Tulsa Then & Now: Mapping the BFC FREE for your iOS device in the App Store.  Go to http://bit.ly/tulsathennow.

 

TULSAWIKI: A REPOSITORY FOR YOUR LOCAL HISTORY RESEARCH

tulsa wikiIf you have researched a Tulsa and Oklahoma history topic and are looking for a repository for your work or for your resources, the TulsaWiki is a great tool for this purpose. Your TulsaWiki entry may be a useful lead for future researchers and doesn't need to be long or in-depth, unless you want it to be long and in-depth. 

What is a wiki? A wiki is a resource that provides content on a subject or subjects and can be edited by anyone, meaning you have the ability to add, delete or revise the information that is posted. TulsaWiki is a local wiki focusing specifically on our great community. While TulsaWiki is hosted by the Tulsa Library, its content comes from the community. This could include people, places, history, events, weather, politics, and more. 

It's a fairly simple process to sign up and start contributing to the wiki and/or collaborating on local history projects. You can read more about the process here
