The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s National Digital Library is a searchable collection of selected images, historical artifacts, audio clips, publications, and video, most of which are in the public domain. Those not in the public domain are intended for personal, private use. Users can browse by collection (i.e. view all videos or view all maps). Alternatively, users may browse by topic (i.e. browse all digital assets related to migratory birds – regardless of asset type).
What you’ll find
The digital library is organized into five collections.
- Images – A selection of digital still images which are the very best visual representation of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service mission
- Videos – The outstanding work of our FWS videographers who have produced outreach and instructional tools available for public access. These videos depict the outstanding work of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and its conservation partners.
- Documents – A selection of reports, brochures, historic texts, oral history transcripts, and other texts.
- Audio – A selection of podcasts and audio files that provide insight into the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service mission
- Maps – A selection of geospatial data and information used to visually represent conservation issues by analyzing and modeling for decision support. Maps and geospatial data are available for public access.
