The Bear River Watershed's geography, history, and development are the primary focus of this collection of images, maps, papers, and reports. Funded by grants from the Utah State University Water Initiative, this project digitizes selected materials cited in the Bear River Watershed Historical Bibliography, including photographs of the Bear River from the 1860s to the 1990s, manuscripts and records of local irrigation companies, and research on the societal impact of reclamation development in the Bear River Basin. Originals are housed in the Utah State University Libraries' Special Collections & Archives.
The Bear River Watershed digital collection is part of a collaborative regional digital project called Western Waters Digital Library (WWDL). Consisting of digital collections from many western U.S. academic research libraries, the WWDL offers centralized searching of materials related to water in the western U.S.
