About UW-Parkside Digital Collections

UW-Parkside Library Digital Collections showcases distinctive materials in an online forum, creating an avenue of access to UW-Parkside's unique library and archival materials for teaching, learning, and research at our university, in our community and worldwide.

We contribute material collaboratively to state and national digital collections initiatives that benefit UW-Parkside and the larger research community. We select materials using specific criteria:

  • usefulness to UW-Parkside faculty and students in the classroom,
  • scholarly research potential
  • heavy usage by community and student researchers
  • preservation of fragile materials against damage
  • unique character of the collection
  • potential of the digital form coupled with software and applications to add value to a collection
  • the ability of the digital format to expose otherwise hidden collections of significant value
  • compliance of digitization and online publication with copyright law
