UW-Madison’s libraries are one of the crown jewels of the university, with vast collections, much of which are available online.
During this webinar, specially designed for UWRA members, experts from the libraries will introduce us to some of the fascinating hidden digital gems within the collections, explain simply how we as retirees can access them, and provide a sneak peek at the invisible work librarians do to make collections accessible to their communities. As part of the panel, speakers will introduce the work of UW’s Digital Collections Center and showcase some of its fascinating holdings, and they will give us a tour of the Map Library’s amazing archive of aerial photographs of Wisconsin, which date back to the 1930s.
Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to explore some of the fascinating digital corners in the UW-Madison Libraries online—all from the convenience of home!
