We’ve added nine new collections to the Western Waters Digital Library recently. These collections complement existing historical materials in Western Waters, as well as adding to the number of current papers and technical reports that are available for research. Here is an overview of all the new additions!


From Oregon State University’s Scholar’s Archive, the following three collections were added, in addition to the Oregon State University Rising Flood Waters: 1964 Corvallis collection mentioned previously:
