What are Special Collections?

The Special Collections section of JDH Library seeks to build a research collection of high quality by identifying, collecting, preserving, and providing access to materials relating to Northwestern Wisconsin as well as the communities surrounding Lake Superior and the upper Great Lakes. As an integral part of the teaching and research functions of the University of Wisconsin-Superior, Special Collections seeks to support research for students, faculty and staff as well as the broader community. Areas of concentration include: Local government; industry; sciences and the environment; Community and community groups; the University; and manuscript collections on transportation and Great Lakes maritime history; and the Beecroft collection on book publishing and propaganda. More detailed information about the collections may be found via the links below.
