What better way for a Virtual Library Cat to spend a quiet, snowy Saturday but in a warm corner by the reference librarian? One of my favorite discoveries between catnaps was This website gem, a collaboration of university and other wilderness research institutes, includes a gallery of wonderful photos to search, browse, enlarge, and even download as high resolution images. But it is also home to the "Wilderness Law Library," a collection of U.S. legislation keyed to specific wilderness areas. This is the place to find regulations and other agency-specific and topical resources, Congressional research reports, articles, links to other wilderness sites, historical timelines, statistics, wilderness area descriptions, and maps, all in one well organized and integrated collection. Enjoy it just to browse or plan outdoor adventures--then bookmark it as a great source for legal research.
