Bulletins, field notebooks, and early photographs preserved online

images from the UW Digital Collection of Survey holdings: cover of bulletin, photograph of a geologist in training, and an illustration from one of Van Hise's field notebooksThe UW Digital Collection and WGNHS have worked together over the last several years to digitize many of the Survey's geological holdings. Collections include our complete collection of bulletins, field photographs from the early 1900s, the field notebooks of Charles Van Hise, and early hydrographic lake maps.

According to Melissa McLimans, UW Digital Collections librarian, “The relationship that has developed between the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey and the UW Digital Collections has benefited both of us. The notebooks of Charles Van Hise and the early images of the Survey are historical scientific gems. Working together we have been able to preserve them and at the same time make them accessible. The audience for these volumes and images is diverse, from Wisconsin history enthusiasts to geologists and scholars of environmental history, and the digital projects have allowed us to reach more and more people.”
