Special Collections hosted the annual UW-System Archives Council meeting on Thursday, Nov 10th, 2011.
The Wisconsin Historical Society is in the process of barcoding all their collections to make borrowing between the various Area Research Centers easier.
Two Civil War sites were discussed. UW-River Falls shared a blog they have been working on in honor of the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War. They are using their own manuscripts to share what was happening each year as time unfolds. The Wisconsin Historical Society has put together “Wisconsin in the Civil War”, a digital collection.
