They are loosely organized into collections that span a range of subjects including art, ecology, literature, history, music, natural resources, science, social sciences, the state of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin. Digital resources include text-based materials such as books, journal series and manuscript collections; photographic images; slides; maps; prints; posters; audio; and video.
