The University of Wisconsin Digital Collections (UWDC) were established in the summer of 2001 by the Council of University of Wisconsin Libraries (CUWL) and UW System's Office of Learning and Information Technology to provide quality digital resources from its academic libraries to UW faculty, staff and students, citizens of the state, and scholars at large. The University of Wisconsin Digital Collections Center was formed to be the utility that digitizes, provides access to, and maintains digital projects. Since that time, the UWDC has digitized more than one million objects, developed and implemented technologies to enhance digital collections, and partnered with a variety of content providers to create illustrative and valuable digital resources UWDC and the University Archives have worked with the Aldo Leopold Foundation to create The Aldo Leopold Archives, the digitized collection of the extensive public writings and personal papers, letters and photographs of Aldo Leopold, well known as the author of A Sand County Almanac and one of the most influential conservationists of the 20th century.
