Recollection Wisconsin reaches a milestone

We’re very excited to have hit a major milestone this fall — more than 200,000 photos, maps, books and other digital historical resources can now be discovered through the Recollection Wisconsin portal. We’ve grown so much since the portal first launched (as Wisconsin Heritage Online) in 2006, thanks to expanding digitization efforts from libraries, archives, historical societies and museums around the state and thanks to the IT staff at UW-Madison who maintain the technology that enables us to bring all this content together in one place.

Our total leapt ahead this year with the addition of two very large new collections — UW-Milwaukee’s Milwaukee Polonia and the World War I Military Portraits collection from Milwaukee Public Library. We’re looking forward to adding more great resources from Wisconsin collections in the coming months and years!
