Welcome to The Morgue, Kansas City Kansas Community College’s premier author, title, journal, and subject index of English language journals within the field of Mortuary Science.

The need for a computerized indexing system to support students of Mortuary Science has been apparent for many years. The Morgue attempts to provide students, scholars and researchers with an on-line tool specifically targeted at the literature in the field of Mortuary Science. The database can be searched by author’s name, journal title, article title and subject. The Morgue does not index articles relating to association news, conventions, interviews, features, reader’s forums, advertisements, classified ads, obituaries, or briefs.
