Library links

Here at the University of Wisconsin we have some great librarians, constantly telling us about new resources and bending over backwards for us. Some of these thing may be Wisconsin specific, but hey, what's wrong with a little Wisconsin in your life?

Wisconsin Historical Society has some great resources, like all of these digital resources, including the Wisconsin Pioneer Experience.

The Medical Collections librarian clued us in on:

The Arts Collections. The first submission to this collection is Arts in Society, a journal published on the UW campus from 1958 to 1976.

Icelandic Online Dictionary and Readings, a free-access, Web-based course in Modern Icelandic language and culture, with supplementary resources. Major partners in developing this project were the University of Iceland in Reykjavík and the UW-Madison.

Virginia M. Kline Collection: Ecological Communities of Wisconsin. This collection includes a series of slides reflecting the natural history of Wisconsin, past and present. Also included are a series of audiotapes from the course "Reading the Landscape," taught by Dr. Virginia M. Kline. The images were part of the personal slide collection of Dr. Kline. The collection records a story of the natural history of Wisconsin and of the life and work of Dr. Kline.

Notes from the Stone-Paved Path: Meditations on North India presents photographs taken in the north of India between 1995-96 with pages photographed from books pertaining to this region among the holdings of Memorial Library. They speak to themes ranging from agricultural economics and autobiography to short stories, and reflect sensibilities from the mid-14th century to scholarship of the late 20th century.

Women's Audio Visuals In English (WAVE) is a database maintained by the University of Wisconsin System Women's Studies Librarian's Office that lists documentary, experimental, and feature film and video productions by and about women.
