Welcome to the Digital Library/Archive at UW
The Digital Library/Archive at the University of Wyoming is a permanent, web-based digital repository that collects and preserves collections that represent the scholarly and creative output of the faculty, staff, and students of the University of Wyoming.
This site is a preservation site. For public access please see the Wyoming Scholars Repository (WySR) at http://repository.uwyo.edu/.
Materials you will find among the digitized collections include historic maps, photographs, printed ephemera, sound and video files, and more.
Western Trails explored the adaptability/adoptability of the Colorado Digitization Project model for collaboration among cultural heritage institutions, focusing digitization efforts on a statewide basis. The State Libraries of Wyoming, Nebraska, and Kansas led these explorations.

Old Believer Collection
This exhibit features a history of the schism that shook the Russian Orthodox Church in 1666–1667. This schism began as the result of a series of church reforms introduced by Patriarch Nikon. Old Believers continue liturgical practices which the Russian Orthodox Church maintained before the implementation of these reforms. Russian-speakers refer to the schism itself as raskol (раскол - etymologically indicating a "cleaving-apart"). This exhibit focuses on the Old Believers and their music.
