Area Research Center
What has one central nervous system, fourteen arms, too many legs to count, and is as big as the entire state of Wisconsin? The Area Research Center Network!
The central nervous system of the Area Research Center network is the Wisconsin Historical Society. The fourteen arms are the Area Research Centers located throughout the state and mostly on University of Wisconsin campus libraries. The many legs represent the courier system that can transfer archival collections from the Wisconsin Historical Society to the Area Research Centers, or from one Area Research Center to another. This historic monster covers the entire state of Wisconsin!
The Green Bay Area Research Center was established in 1972. We are located in the Cofrin Library at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. We are the official repository for the Wisconsin Historical Society's collections of manuscripts and public records relating to northeastern Wisconsin counties of: Brown, Calumet, Door, Florence, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto, Outagamie, and Shawano.
If you are looking for resources rich in historical and genealogical information, the Area Research Center network is one monster you won't want to hide under your bed!
