  • Crystal Falconer, Technical Information Specialist, Forest Service, National Forest Service Library

Description:

    Learn about the National Forest Service’s Digital Collections at the National Forest Service Library digitization project, from the planning to completion phase. The focus of the Digital Collections is on rare Forest Service materials that are not digitized elsewhere or otherwise available on TreeSearch, another Forest Service product that shares free, full text research by Forest Service employees.

    The Digital Collections contain documents related to National Forests, Forest Service history, Forest Service research, photos (mostly historic), and oral histories of Forest Service employees. Subjects found in the Digital Collections site include: firefighting, entomology, forest health, forestry, timber management, forest management, forest products, flora and fauna, land reclamation, and much more.
