Western Waters Digital Library

The Western Waters Digital Library: Columbia River Basin in Oregon is a collection of historical and contemporary resources focused on the Columbia River Basin. Its objective is to provide access to well-organized, comprehensive information sources and analysis based on high quality research and accurate historical records, with the goal of enabling westerners to meet the challenge of managing their water resources wisely in the 21st century.


University of Oregon’s participation in the Western Waters Digital Library (WWDL) project was led by the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA) and funded in 2003 with a two-year National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
