Wildlife and Wilderness

During December, Lebanon Library will be hosting a tabletop exhibition on the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. Coupled with the fact that it's also hunting season, we thought it was a good time to share the 62 years of Virginia Wildlife magazine with you.

Last year, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) and the Library of Virginia announced a partnership to digitize and make available every issue of Virginia Wildlife from January 1959 to December 2012. This is the state's leading magazine on hunting, fishing, boating and wildlife. In addition to current information, it includes historical facts, photographs and recipes for wild game and fish.

Look for the magazine via the DGIF website or via the Library of Virginia's Internet Archive website. You can read online, as pdf, an epub, Daisy and several more formats.

The project was made possible through the LYRASIS Digitization Collaborative-a Sloan Foundation grant-subsidized program. A partnership with the Internet Archive scanned all the items from cover to cover.

So if you want to get outside, don't worry if the weather outside is frightful. Just click and enjoy the wildlife outside from inside!
