The University of Michigan Library and its project partners, the Fish and
Mammal Divisions of the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology and the
Fungus Collection of the University of Michigan Herbarium, are pleased to
announce a new digital library resource, "Flora and Fauna of the Great
Lakes Region," at

The web site provides access to specimen materials selected from the three
museum divisions' extensive Great Lakes holdings. When complete, the
resource will include 11 sub-collections, containing many images as well as
collection data. A working prototype for a system to provide integrated
access to all of the Museum Divisions' collections and additional content
such as field notes and other supplementary information, the site is
intended to facilitate access to natural history collections for the
general user as well as the specialist interested in searching across
domains.  The web site was developed using the Library's DLXS suite of
tools for building digital libraries.

Content will continue to be added to the online collections through
December 2002.

This project was funded by a generous grant from the Institute of Museum
and Library Services, Library-Museum Collaboration Program.
