The Maine and the Environment digital collection brings together items from across the Edmund S. Muskie Archives and Special Collections Library relating to and engaging with the natural environment and environmental issues. The items span many formats including photographs, audio recordings, constituent letters, and cover environmental movements, efforts, and legislation from local individuals up to the State and Federal level. The exhibit currently pulls from four collections, including the vast collection of Mainer and Bates graduate, Edmund S. Muskie. The digital exhibit will grow as more material is digitized so it can better capture and represent the breadth of environmentally related materials that is held within the archives.
