Updates to Wyoming Digital Collections Make Searching Easier

Jun 5, 2023

Interested in Wyoming’s history? Five of the six resources in the Wyoming State Library’s Digital Collection Suite have recently been updated with a new interface, making them easier to browse and search. These five updated collections contain more than 960,000 digital records:

  • Wyoming Places provides information about locations, histories, name origins, and stories of both modern and historic places in the state.
  • Wyoming State Publications is a digital collection of items produced by state government agencies and boards, as well as federal documents pertaining to Wyoming.
  • Wyoming Legislation contains legislative information including  journals, bills, and session audio files as far back as territorial days.
  • Wyoming Inventors is a database of full text U.S. patents with Wyoming roots. Records date from 1867 to present.
  • Wyoming Trademarks showcases trademarked names, logos, and wordmarks registered to Wyoming residents and business owners.

Those who’ve used the digital collections will find a similar look and feel as well as the same great content of nearly a million records. The updated interface has simplified browsing and made it easier to find links to the resources needed by researchers, historians, genealogists, students, and anyone interested in Wyoming’s history.
