Digital Collections & Archives

UW Bothell Diversity Center Archive

This collection presents and preserves the history and work of UW Bothell students and the UW Bothell community in creating the UW Bothell Student Diversity Center. The archive records the power of individuals coming together to achieve a shared goal.  Included in the archive are the narratives and voices of individuals who steadfastly committed to making the Diversity Center a reality at UW Bothell. Here we have collected interviews with change-makers, photos of demonstrations and activism, and other documentation of activism efforts and current Diversity Center activities.

Wetlands Digital Collection

This collection includes photographs documenting the restoration project, from its early day before and during construction through its ecological development to the present times. Images address many aspects of the science and natural history of the site and its human use.  The collection also includes maps and documents relevant to the wetlands restoration project.
