Development of the Idaho Digital Watershed Library (IWRRI Project KE K164) Grant uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • Currently, a vast amount of public material related to Idaho water issues generally, and the Coeur D’Alene Watershed specifically, exists that is not easily accessed via electronic means. Consequently, those researching Idaho water issues spend an unnecessarily large amount of time simply tracking down the relevant papers, reports, datasets, and other materials they need to begin their research. This indicates a need for a central repository that researchers can publicly access, effectively browse, and efficiently search.  The Coeur D’Alene Watershed Digital Library project would address this problem by developing and then providing access to a central digital repository for Coeur D’Alene Watershed materials by identifying, collecting, assessing, and cataloging relevant documents and then uploading these materials into the University of Idaho Library’s ContentDM enabled database and maintained and administered as part of the Library’s Digital Collections.
