At Recollection Wisconsin you can find state and local history resources as well as materials from across the country and around the world, all from the collections of dozens of Wisconsin libraries, archives, historical societies and museums.

This site includes resources about Wisconsin from contributors around the country. For example, New York Public Library has a great collection of stereographs of the Wisconsin Dells, photographed by H. H. Bennett.  And the National Archives holds thousands of photos of Wisconsin landscapes from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  And much, much more.

Recollection Wisconsin is a consortium administered by Wisconsin Library Service and managed by seven Governing Partners: WiLS, Wisconsin Historical Society, Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Milwaukee Public Library and Marquette University. Primary support for Recollection Wisconsin is provided by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, which administers Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds distributed by the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
