About Western Waters Digital Library

The Western Waters Digital Library (WWDL) provides free public access to a wide range of significant resources on water in the Western United States. Available resources include classic water literature, legal transcripts, maps, reports, personal papers, water project records, photographs, audio recordings, videos, and other material. The WWDL also includes selected collection guides. These guides, also known as finding aids, describe a collection’s content, significance, and relevance to a particular research topic. Visit our FAQ page for more information.

History of the Western Waters Digital Library

The WWDL began as a collaborative regional project created by twelve research libraries from eight western states under the auspices of the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA). Funding for the WWDL has been provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
