Archival Information About Umpqua Basin

Archival information about fish and water in the Umpqua Basin can be found in reports housed in disparate locations (e.g., offices of various State and Federal agencies and local organizations).  To make this information more widely available, reports that met a high priority preservation need for the Partnership for the Umpqua Rivers were digitally scanned, cataloged and archived by OSU Libraries.  These reports, along with films and maps, are stored permanently in the Umpqua Basin Explorer Digital Library.
